Título Reciprocal association between atopy and respiratory symptoms in fully-employed female, but not male, workers in swine operations
Información bibliográfica 2nd Quarter 2009, Vol.14, No.2, p.270-276. Illus. 21 ref.
Resumen Women account for a sizeable proportion of the workers in swine operations. A total of 240 men and 134 women swine barn workers, together with 184 men and 227 women non-farming rural dwellers completed questionnaires on respiratory symptoms and underwent skin prick tests. Findings indicate that atopy in exposed female workers may be protective of symptoms suggestive of chronic bronchitis but that atopic women workers may be more susceptible to the development of asthma, and that exposures to the various inhaled substances at the workplace may be mediated differently in men and women.
