BOHRF Original Authors' Main Conclusions

The original authors' main conclusions are taken from Abstract, Results and Discussion. They are decided upon by the authors of the BOHRF occupational asthma guidelines and form part of the guidelines.

Patients interviewed for follow-up of occupational asthma on average 6 years after asthma developed (median time between exposure and occupational asthma symptoms 4 years). 90% felt asthma had improved in parallel with avoidance or reduction in exposure to causative agent. However, 72% still required therapy of some sort and 10% had required hospital admission. 1/3 were currently unemployed and 40-73% reported limitations in everyday activities.
