Excluded from BOHRF

This paper has been excluded from the BOHRF occupational asthma guidelines for the reason shown below

Did not meet standard methodological quality. A study of workplace practices and policies and not their evaluation. Since a job applicant with highly positive skin test results to animal antigens, a high level of specific IgE antibodies to animal antigens, and a positive personal history of chronic rhinitis and asthma is plainly not a suitable candidate for work in an animal facility, employing someone with this background seems slightly fatuous. Descriptive only. Information relating to pre-employment scopes the areas of questioning and not the underlying rationale.
