Title Sulfur dioxide and ammonium sulfate effects on pulmonary function and bronchial reactivity in human subjects
Bibliographic information Mar. 1984, Vol.45, No.3, p.156-161. 33 ref.
Abstract The effect of exposures to 1ppm sulfur dioxide and 500µg/m3 respirable ammonium sulfate particles was studied in 20 non-smoking subjects while performing 15min exercises during 4h exposure periods in an environmental chamber. Response to exposure was measured by pulmonary function tests and bronchial reactivity to methacholine. No significant changes were observed after separate or combined exposures to the 2 contaminants.
