||Lung function tests before and after bronchial provocation were performed on 47 workers of a core shop in a light-metal foundry with 3 years of exposure. Visual disturbances (blue haze) due to exposure to dimethylisopropylamine were reported by 36 workers. Bronchial ractivity was elevated in 20 workers as compared with non-exposed controls.
