CIS 72-2673 Gupta M.N.
Review of byssinosis in India
8 studies are reviewed of byssinosis in 6 Indian textile towns over the period 1950-1968. The byssinosis incidence of 3.2-14.77% does not indicate a serious byssinosis hazard in Indian textile mills, since clinically significant or disabling byssinosis is uncommon. Incidence of the disease in card rooms is very low: 7.3-20%. The few pulmonary-function and dust studies (filter cone, electrostatic precipitator and millipore filter) have not established a relation between dust burden and disease incidence or a relation between pulmonary function and disease incidence.

La réparation de la silicose - Union sud-africaine - Grande-Bretagne - Allemagne [in French]
When one considers the legislation adopted by various countries with respect to the compensation of silicosis, one observes that silicosis is covered according to several different systems that can be broadly grouped together under the following headings: compensation by means of specific legislation; compensation within the framework of accident insurance (based on lists or on special systems); blanket coverage under the general provisions of employment hazards. This publication presents in detail the measures enacted in three countries that can be considered as being representative of the main legislative systems: Union of South Africa (specific legislation); Great Britain (special systems); Germany (lists).
