Brucellosis (Bang's disease) considered as an occupational disease
Die Brucellose (Morbus Bang) als Berufskrankheit [in German]
This article gives a roundup of the various aspects of this disease, referring to data in the literature and to 700 case studies of occupational brucellosis (mostly caused by Brucella abortus) observed by the author in 30 years of practice. All the possibilities offered by bacteriology, immunology and serology should be used, as the symptoms of brucellosis vary considerably. The results of serological tests are considered doubtful without a clinical examination. The relations between infection, clinical symptoms and diagnostic results are shown in a synoptic table showing 11 different types of course which brucellosis caused by Brucella abortus can take in man; occupational factors in pathogenesis are indicated. The author emphasises the importance of Burnet's intradermal reaction test. The article concludes with considerations on: treatment, statutory compensation, and medical prevention in the author's veterinary laboratory.

Contribution to the recognition of toxoplasmosis as an occupational disease
Příspěvek k poznání profesionality toxoplazmózy [in Czech]
The authors carried out skin tests with toxoplasmin in 1,027 subjects. In the group of persons occupationally in contact with animals (work in abattoirs, pig farms, handling laboratory animals) they observed 60.8% of positive reactions, whereas in the control group (electric power station employees, schoolchildren, etc.) only 35.6% were positive. Positive reactions were significantly higher among rural than among urban populations. Within the control group, a significant statistical difference was observed between cat owners and others who had no contact with cats. This difference was particularly marked in the lowest age bracket (14-19 years) where 39.4% of positive reactions were observed in cat owners, compared to only 16.1% in the controls.

Human psittacosis associated with commercial processing of turkeys.
After an introduction tracing the incidence of psittacosis epidemics in the USA, this report describes investigations of a series of such epidemics at turkey-processing plants, mainly in Texas, in May-Aug. 1974, involving 114 workers. The incidence in 80 workers at 3 plants is classified by occupation: the attack rate was directly related to exposure to the viscera and faeces of infected turkeys. Workers exposed to live birds did not fall ill. Serological studies suggested that non-clinical psittacosis may be relatively common in persons associated with turkeys. Control measures included screening turkey flocks before slaughter and treatment of infected birds.

Occupational pathology in the pharmaceutical industry
Pathologie professionnelle dans l'industrie pharmaceutique. [in French]
MD thesis. The historical background of the pharmaceutical industry is followed by a review of the various operations involved in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. The abundance of products encountered in this industry accounts for the variety of its occupational pathology. Subsequent chapters are devoted to: pathology common to every chemical industry; disorders due to chemical, infectious and physical agents. Dermatitis appears to be the most serious problem. Individual and collective protection and the complex problem of compensation are considered.

Making work more human - Working conditions and environment
Pour un travail plus humain - Les conditions et le milieu de travail. [in French]
This Report takes stock of the general conditions of work in the world, with the problems still outstanding, and sketches the broad outlines of an international programme envisaged for the future action of the ILO in this field: safety and healthiness in the working environment; hours of work; organisation and content of work. Regarding the first point, it draws attention, in particular, to the following aspects: disorders related to work that are not legally recognised as being of occupational origin; agricultural hazards (zoonoses, allergies, hazards of pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers), etc. It stresses the need to adapt legislation, and the difficulty of its application. Consideration is also given to the cost of safety (far lower than the cost of accidents), safety training, etc. Appendices are devoted to: activities of the ILO in 1974, and action taken on the resolutions adopted by the International Labour Conference at its 54th to 59th Sessions.

Concerning the problem of occupational leptospirosis in Czechoslovakia
K problematice profesionální leptospirózy v ČSSR [in Czech]
Analysis of the statistics of notified cases of leptospirosis held to be of occupational origin in Czechoslovakia (1961-1971). The proportion of cases where there was a finding of occupational origin varied considerably from one region to another (between 2.5 and 41.7%). The authors consider this disparity to be due to insufficient knowledge of certain serotypes of leptospira.

Discovery of listeria among occupationally exposed persons
Nálezy listérií u profesionálně exponovaných osob [in Slovak]
The authors isolated Listeria (erysipelothrix) monocytogenes (L.m.) in the faeces, in smears from the upper airways, and on the skin (hands) and workclothes of workers in the meat industry, agricultural workers, and those employed in undertakings where listeriosis-infected animals were to be found. Cultures taken from these smears were positive for L.m., and this was confirmed by findings of higher levels of O,H-agglutinins and complement-binding antibodies in the workers examined, who all appeared to be in good health at the time of the examination. However, closer scrutiny of their history brought to light further evidence of possible infection: influenza-type symptoms, premature births, stillbirths, etc.

An outbreak of chimpanzee associated hepatitis.
A report of an outbreak of chimpanzee-associated hepatitis which occurred at a zoo and involved 14 animal handlers. The outbreak had characteristics of short-incubation or type A viral hepatitis and was traced to a recently imported chimpanzee. Considerable caution would seem advisable in the handling of newly imported subhuman primates and especially their excreta. Routine screening for elevated serum transaminases on arrival might prove valuable in detecting animals capable of transmitting hepatitis.
