The Effect of Agricultural Exposures and Genetics on Respiratory Phenotypes

The Effect of Agricultural Exposures and Genetics on Respiratory Phenotypes

Agricultural workers are at risk for respiratory diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic bronchitis, due to exposures and inflammatory agents found in their work environment.

Agricultural workers are at risk for respiratory diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic bronchitis, due to exposures and inflammatory agents found in their work environment. While previous studies have been conducted to examine agricultural effects of chronic respiratory diseases more closely, there are still several significant gaps in the existing literature. This dissertation explores the relationship between agricultural exposures and respiratory diseases. Utilizing two populations, the Keokuk Country Rural Health Study and the AgLung Study, this research: 1) used principal factor analysis (PFA) to distill exposure data into essential variables characterizing long-term agricultural exposures in order to examine the relationship between agricultural exposures and chronic respiratory diseases, 2) examined the relationship between TLR4 299/399 polymorphisms with chronic bronchitis and pro-inflammatory cytokines in two agriculturally-exposed populations, and 3) examined the lung microbiome longitudinally in agriculturally-exposed individuals with stable COPD. The results of the studies included in this dissertation may assist in continuing to fill the gaps in knowledge in this area of study in order to improve respiratory health in agricultural workers.

Hardbound. This book will be very useful for those who are engaged in prevention or health management of occupational respiratory diseases. Key features of Advances in the Prevention of Occupational Respiratory Diseases are the discussions, presentations, and lectures at the 9th International Conference in Kyoto, Japan which focused on the results of the latest researches in the field and the tendency of occupational respiratory diseases in many countries.Papers focused on all types of occupational respiratory diseases including: - pneumoconiosis, - biological effect of natural and synthetic fibers, - occupational respiratory allergies, - and more

Respiratory Illness in Farmers

Respiratory Illness in Farmers

The report reviews more than 250 Australian and international papers and reports on the topic. This literature acknowledged that farm workers may experience respiratory symptoms as a consequence of working in these conditions.

Occupational health and safety issues have become a major issue in Australia and all employers are required to determine whether farm environments have the potential to adversely impact on the health of their workers. The aim of this study was to review the literature to determine what is known about the potential exposure to dust and bioaerosols and the potential impact on the respiratory health of workers in animal handling facilities in an agricultural setting. The aims of the study were to identify the concentrations of dusts and bioaerosols to which people working in animal production are currently exposed and determine which animal production systems have the potential to be a risk to worker health. The report reviews more than 250 Australian and international papers and reports on the topic. This literature acknowledged that farm workers may experience respiratory symptoms as a consequence of working in these conditions. The link between the often dusty work environment of animal husbandry workers and its adverse impact on health on is not as well defined as was expected, as very few international airborne dust and bioaerosol exposure studies have been adequately linked to epidemiological studies and none in Australia. Consequently more in-depth work on this topic needs to be undertaken in Australia. The importance of this report is that it provides basic statistical information on the impact of dust and bioareosols on farm workers employed in the pig, poultry, cattle, sheep, horse and deer industries. It is primarily targeted at occupational health and safety and environmental health practitioners who may need to advise farm owners/managers in Australia on the potential respiratory risks for their workers from exposure to dusts and bioaerosols. Investors in these animal industries may use the report as a basis from which to make decisions about controlling dust and bioaerosols in enclosed animal housing. The report will also be useful to medical practitioners whose patients may be employed in animal handling facilities and presenting respiratory symptoms that may be a result of their work. The report will also inform policy development, and will help RIRDC as it plans its research and development priorities into the future. The report has identified that more detailed studies on the impact of exposure to dust and bioaerosols on the health of agricultural workers need to be undertaken in Australia.

Now in its Fifth Edition, Crofton and Douglas's Respiratory Diseases has firmly established itself as the leading clinical textbook on diseases of the chest. Presented, for the first time, as a two-volume set, this classic text has been completely rewritten and greatly expanded. Extensive revisions ensure that these volumes present an up-to-date review of all aspects of lung disease . The contributions of some 18 leading authorities ensure that each area is comprehensively covered and new to this edition are chapters on the genetics of lung disease, smoking, air pollution, sleep apnoea, diving, lung transplantation and medico-legal aspects. The changes in content reflect the pace of change in the areas concerned not only in terms of understanding of the disease processes but also their treatment. The single chapter on asthma that appeared in previous editions, has now been expanded into three chapters covering epidemiology, mechanisms and management, reflecting the enormous research effort currently underway following a marked increase in the incidence of this disease in recent years. This new edition continues to provide an excellent reference both for the trainee and specialist in respiratory medicine, as well as the general physician. It will be extremely useful on the ward and in the office, where clinical problems arise and questions are asked which need clear answers.
