Green spaces and adverse pregnancy outcomes.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the associations between proximity to green spaces and surrounding greenness and pregnancy outcomes, such as birth weight, low birth weight (LBW), very LBW (VLBW), gestational age, preterm deliveries (PTD) and very PTD (VPTD). This study was based on 39,13...
Exhaled nitric oxide in spray painters exposed to isocyanates: effect modification by atopy and smoking.
Isocyanate asthma is one of the most frequently identified forms of occupational asthma in industrialised countries. The underlying mechanisms have not been clarified. There is only limited information about the relationship between exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) and occupational exposure to isocyanates...
0297 The prevalence of risk factors associated with Computer Vision Syndrome among computer works in São Paulo, Brazil.
The aims of this study were to investigate work conditions, to estimate the prevalence and to describe risk factors associated with Computer Vision Syndrome among computer works in São Paulo. The methods include a quantitative cross-sectional observational study and an ergonomic work analysis, using...
0300 The NIEHS GuLF STUDY: A comparison of the β-substitution method and a Bayesian approach for handling highly censored measurement data.
Over 150 000 measurements taken on workers responding to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill are being used to develop exposure estimates for the participants in the GuLF STUDY. A large portion of the measurements, however, has values below the limit of detection (left-censored). The β-substitution...
0336 Municipal cartography of asbestos exposure in a Paris' suburb: an original use of an occupational exposure database.
Fibrex database can be described as a board giving a correspondence between jobs and quantitative indications of occupational exposure to one or several noxious fibres. The objective of this present work is to propose a municipal index of asbestos exposure and finally map it by crossing the Fibrex d...
0108 Characterisation of wet work and glove use in healthcare occupations.
Wet work (contact and/or use of liquids) could lead to skin exposures to chemical irritants and sensitizers among healthcare workers. The objective of this study was to characterise the frequency and duration of glove use when wet work was performed by healthcare workers. Direct observational studie...
0198 Lung Cancer Risk among Minnesota Taconite Mining Workers.
The mining and processing of taconite results in exposures to non-asbestiform amphibole and non-amphibole minerals. Previous studies have shown that taconite mining workers are at an increased risk for developing lung cancer and mesothelioma and duration of employment has been shown to contribute to...
0202 The impact of respirable dust and respirable quartz on pulmonary function - results of a longitudinal study.
The present study sought to examine the long-term effects of exposure to respirable dust, in particular of respirable quartz on pulmonary function. The study is based on the Wismut cohort of former uranium miners. Spirometric data, including forced expiratory volume in 1s (FEV1) and forced vital cap...
0228 Perceived workplace discrimination and self rated health in the chilean workforce.
These results may be used to emphasise the importance of enacting preventive and protective workplace discrimination policies. Further research is required to study the causal mechanism of the link and best preventive and protective measures. © 2014, Published by the BMJ Publishing Group Limited. Fo...
0259 Interaction between genetic and occupational factors in lung cancer aetiology. A population-based case-control study0259 Interaction ...
We aimed to investigate interactions between exposure to occupational carcinogens and genetic polymorphisms in lung cancer aetiology, adopting a systematic integrated approach. EAGLE, a population-based case-control study, enrolled 2100 lung cancer cases and 2120 controls (Italy, 2002-2005). Lifetim...
