  1. Shift work and subfecundity: a causal link or an artefact?

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):E12 (2003) PMID 12937208 PMCID PMC1740621

    The Danish National Birth Cohort (DNBC) was used to examine whether shift work is associated with reduced fecundity as estimated by time to pregnancy (TTP). From 1 March 1998 to 1 May 2000, 39 913 pregnant women were enrolled in the DNBC. Data on job characteristics and TTP (0-2, 3-5, 6-12, and ...
  2. Inflammatory potential of dust from schools and building related symptoms.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):E5 (2003) PMID 12937201 PMCID PMC1740613

    To test whether the inflammatory potential of dust samples might be used to differentiate schools with high and low prevalence of building related symptoms (BRS) among the occupants. Ten schools with high prevalence of BRS and 10 schools with low prevalence were selected. Dust collected from flo...
  3. Do junior doctors take sick leave?

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):699 (2003) PMID 12937196 PMCID PMC1740639

    Nosocomial infections place a heavy burden on overstretched health services. An audit of junior doctors' sick leave behaviour was undertaken in 1993 and again in 2001. The object was to ascertain the level of common infectious illness and to investigate whether junior doctors were remaining at w...
  4. Occupation related pesticide exposure and cancer of the prostate: a meta-analysis.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):634 (2003) PMID 12937183 PMCID PMC1740608

    To summarise recent literature on the risk of prostate cancer in pesticide related occupations, to calculate the meta-rate ratio, and to compare it to data from meta-analyses previously published. A meta-analysis of 22 epidemiological studies, published between 1995 and 2001, was conducted in or...
  5. A mortality and morbidity study of refinery and petrochemical employees in Louisiana.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):627 (2003) PMID 12937182 PMCID PMC1740632

    To examine the mortality experience of 4221 employees from 1973 to 1999 and the illness absence patterns for 2203 employees from 1990 to 1999 of a chemical and refinery facility in Louisiana. Mortality and illness absence data were extracted from the Shell Oil Company's health surveillance syste...
  6. Prevalence and association of welding related systemic and respiratory symptoms in welders.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):655 (2003) PMID 12937186 PMCID PMC1740619

    The prevalence of welding related respiratory symptoms coexisting with welding related systemic symptoms in welders is unknown. To determine in a sample of welders the prevalence of coexisting welding related systemic symptoms indicative of metal fume fever (MFF) and welding related respiratory ...
  7. Can salivary lead be used for biological monitoring of lead exposed individuals?

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):696 (2003) PMID 12937195 PMCID PMC1740634

    Measurement of blood lead (BPb) is the usual method for biomonitoring of persons exposed to inorganic lead. To explore the use of salivary lead (SPb) as an alternative. BPb and SPb levels were measured in a group of 82 lead exposed adults. The mean BPb of the workers was 26.6 microg/dl (SD 8.6, ...

    About 25% of greenhouse flower and/or ornamental plant growers sensitised to workplace flowers or moulds have occupational asthma, a disease that is suffered by 8% of the growers who cultivate these crops. To document a case of occupational asthma due to IgE mediated allergy to the flower Moluce...
  10. Risk factors among elderly for short term deaths related to high levels of air pollution.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):684 (2003) PMID 12937192 PMCID PMC1740638

    Air pollution has been linked to increased rates of mortality, but little is known about individual characteristics related to the increase in risk. To examine short term effects of air pollution on daily mortality in elderly people in Bordeaux and compare characteristics of subjects > or =65 ye...
