Fully updated to include crucial advances in the subject since publication of the First Edition, the Second Edition of this comprehensive volume reviews all aspects of occupational asthma, including disease mechanisms, clinical diagnosis and treatment, and categories of causative agents. Includes new and expanded material on: hypersensitivity pneumonitis and organic dust toxic syndromes; sick building syndrome, occupational rhinitis and urticaria; skin problems, and genetics of occupational asthma; animal, enzyme, and flour allergies; and latex allergy irritant-induced asthma (RADS). Featuring contributions from over 45 international authorities in the field-nearly 20 more than the First Edition - "Asthma in the Workplace, Second Edition" evaluates medicolegal and compensation issues and discusses inhalation challenge testing. Addressing the social outcomes of workers disabled by asthma, this book explores environmental exposure to causative chemicals and protein allergens. With numerous references, tables, drawings, photographs, and micrographs, "Asthma in the Workplace, Second Edition" will be welcomed by clinical immunologists and allergists, pulmonologists, occupational health and thoracic physicians, industrial hygienists, internists, toxicologists, immunotoxicologists, epidemiologists, aerosol scientists, lawyers involved with compensation issues, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
