  1. Changes in ventilatory function in grain processing and animal feed workers in relation to exposure to organic dust.

    Article - En anglais


    The effects of organic dust exposure on the configuration of the maximum expiratory flow volume (MEFV) curve was examined multivariately.


    Data from 390 male workers in the animal feed industry in The Netherlands were analyzed.

    A multivariate technique called nonlinear canonical correlation analyses was used to study the relationship between a set of organic dust exposure variables and a set of ventilatory function variables, RESULTS - The results indicate an almost independent effect of the overall mean organic dust exposure and the number of years of organic dust exposure on ventilatory function.
