Wood-Pulp Workers' Disease


Presentation

  • All measurements of biological markers of inflammation and coagulation are presented in Table 2 .[link.springer.com]
  • Airborne asbestos dust was often present. Pulp and paper workers operate machinery that converts wood chips and plant fibers into paper and paper products, including coated papers, fiber board, paper board and ceiling tile.[belluckfox.com]
  • In a recently published scientific / medical review by our respiratory research group [2], we describe the clinical presentation of MWL associated with mushroom spores from a variety of species, as detailed in Table 1.[themushroompeople.com]
  • The types and severity of symptoms depend upon the types and amount of molds present, the extent of exposure and the individual’s sensitivities.[aboutrestoration.com]
  • Virtually all major categories of pulmonary disease can be caused by environmental agents, and environmentally related disease usually presents clinically in a manner indistinguishable from that of disease not caused by such agents.[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com]
Respiratory Disorders
  • Non-Malignant Diseases The most well documented health problems encountered by pulp mill workers are acute and chronic respiratory disorders (Torén, Hagberg and Westberg 1996).[ilocis.org]
Impulsivity
  • The book includes 23 completely new chapters, and has updated information on: Genetics Pathology Biomarkers Pathogenesis Impulse control disorders in Parkinson's disease Updated outcome measures Complementary and alternative medicine for the treatment[books.google.de]

Treatment

  • The book includes 23 completely new chapters, and has updated information on: Genetics Pathology Biomarkers Pathogenesis Impulse control disorders in Parkinson's disease Updated outcome measures Complementary and alternative medicine for the treatment[books.google.de]
  • Short-term treatment is with corticosteroids; long-term treatment is antigen avoidance.[merckmanuals.com]
  • The major component of solids from secondary treatment is microbial cells.[ilocis.org]
  • By Using VBN, You agree to ALL TERMS.Diseases caused by liver flukes include fascioliasis, opisthorchiasis, and When I came through a book I read about kombucha, which is not explained.Enlarged liver Treatments.[pupycivo.me.ht]

Prognosis

  • Patient management and prognosis are affected significantly by such knowledge. For example, patients with occupational asthma or hypersensitivity pneumonitis often cannot be managed adequately without cessation of exposure to the offending agent.[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com]

Etiology

  • Still the only major text on the subject, the completely revised and updated second edition of Parkinson's Disease: Diagnosis and Clinical Management comes at a time when specialists have made important advances in our understanding of the etiology, pathogenesis[books.google.de]
  • Why is knowledge of occupational or environmental etiology so important? Patient management and prognosis are affected significantly by such knowledge.[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com]
  • The authors indicate that there is a need for further research to distinguish etiologic agents involved in the development of these cancers among paper and pulp mill workers.[cdc.gov]
  • The Etiology/Broad filter was applied through the Clinical Queries tool. Related articles were also identified following a review of the references listed for most of the relevant works identified.[journals.plos.org]

Epidemiology

  • Keywords NIOSH-Author; Pulp-industry; Paper-mills; Paper-manufacturing-industry; Cancer-rates; Mortality-rates; Epidemiology; Carcinogenicity; Stomach-cancer; Lymphatic-cancer; Author Keywords: formaldehyde; lymphosarcoma; occupational health; pentachlorophenol[cdc.gov]
  • Given these limitations, it may not be possible for epidemiological studies to demonstrate either association or causation.[canada.ca]
  • Am J Ind Med 20:769–774 CrossRef Google Scholar Wong O, Ragland DR, Marcero DH (1996) An epidemiologic study of employees at seven pulp and paper mills.[link.springer.com]
  • Furthermore, most of the studies assessed the epidemiological association by obtaining a clinical history and/or occupational history for each of the patients examined.[journals.plos.org]
  • Sophisticated epidemiological investigation was required to confirm the unusual pattern of individual cases that were occurring among viscose workers: disease that was happening both too frequently and among those at too young an age typically to suffer[greenbiz.com]
