Comments for the paper: "Interpretation of serial peak flow records for the diagnosis of occupational asthma – a method based on pattern recognition technology.", 1998, Unpublished
This paper was never published, we are not sure why as it was an improvement on Oasys-2. Perhaps the requirement to manipulate the input data to 5 days at work, 2 days off and 5 further days at work was thought to be a bit removed from the source data. We went on to develop the ABC score which s ...

Comments for the paper: "Occupational allergy to fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) in laboratory workers", 2017, Occup Environ Med
This study shows a clear dose-response for frequency/intensity of exposure for specific IgE to fruit flies (5% low and frequent, 15% high and frequent) and work-related symptoms (chest symptoms 10% vs. 17%). There are a much larger number with work-related symptoms and no specific IgE (>30%) . T ...

Comments for the page titled: "Occupational asthma cause by Triclosan, a biocide used by a nursery nurse; new cause"
A recent consensus statement has highlighted the increased risk of developing asthma after exposure to workplace and domestic cleaning products. Specific cleaning agents, such as benzylalkonium chloride, have been recognized as causes of occupational asthma by sensitization and now comprise a si ...

Comments for the paper: "Association of household cleaning agents and disinfectants with asthma in young German adults.", 2017, Occup Environ Med
Disinfectant sprays at home were associated with an increased risk of new-onset (incident) asthma in 19-24 year-old young people from Dresden and Munich (Odds Ratio 2.79, 95% CI 1.14-6.83). The risk for other sprays was less clear. there was no association between current asthma and cleaning spr ...

Comments for the paper: "Development of a job-task-exposure matrix to assess occupational exposure to disinfectants among US nurses", 2017, Occup Environ Med
This paper tries to estimate exposures to cleaning agents and biocides in nurses and finds that a job-exposure matrix is not very effective at this, but adding a section on tasks is better (a JTEM, job-task exposure matrix). Perhaps there is no real substitute for an occupational history? Expos ...

Could this be due to tetrazine sensitisation from the detonator?

Comments for the paper: "Can serum cytokine profile discriminate irritant-induced and allergen-induced symptoms? A cross-sectional study in workers mostly exposed to laboratory animals.", 2017, Occup
Studies of laboratory animal allergy have consistently shown a large number of workers with work-related asthma or rhinitis but negative IgE to rat and mouse allergens. The current study starts with the hypothesis that those with negative IgE have irritant responses to the animal allergens and c ...

Comments for the paper: "Effect of anti-IgE in occupational asthma caused by exposure to low molecular weight agents.", 2017, Allergy
This is an interesting study showing that anti-IgE in the mouse reduces the effects of nasal challenge with persulphates in dermally sensitised mice. There is some controversy on the role of IgE antibodies in human persulphate asthma, but this study paves the way for a trial in man (or women).
