  1. The epidemiology of occupational asthma.

    Article - En anglais

    With the accelerating pace of new knowledge about occupational asthma, systematic epidemiological approaches have yielded important new insights into its clinical characteristics.

    Such questions as « what proportion of all cases of asthma are caused by occupational exposures? » and « is occipational asthma incidence rising? » can now be answered.

    Surveillance programmes estimate the number of exposed individuals and the number of incident cases, allowing us to perceive the magnitude of the health problem.
