  1. Bioaerosols and occupational lung disease.

    Article - En anglais

    Bioaerosols are formed by suspension of particles of biological origin in the air.

    They come from a wide range of source, many of which are associated with particular occupations.

    Many of the components have been implicated in occupational lung disease.

    The agents include viruses :

    • bacteria ;

    • actinomycete, fungal, moss and fern spores ;

    • algal and plant cells ;

    • insects and mites and their fragments and excreta ;

    • proteins from plant and animal sources ;

    • enzymes, antibiotics and other products from biotechnological processes ;

    • endotoxins from Gram-negative bacteria : and mycotoxins and glucans from fungi.
