Early prognosis of noise-induced hearing loss: prioritising prevention over prediction.
Developing a pooled job physical exposure data set from multiple independent studies: an example of a consortium study of carpal tunnel synd...
Six research groups independently conducted prospective studies of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) incidence in 54 US workplaces in 10 US States. Physical exposure variables were collected by all research groups at the individual worker level. Data from these research groups were pooled to increase the...
Investigating the effectiveness of occupational health interventions in the workplace.
Low-level cadmium exposure and effects on kidney function.
We analysed cadmium in kidney biopsies (K-Cd), blood (B-Cd) and urine (U-Cd) from 109 living kidney donors in a cross-sectional study. We measured glomerular filtration rate (GFR), cystatin C in serum, albumin, β-2-microglobulin (B2M), retinol-binding protein (RBP), α-1-microglobulin (A1M), N-acetyl...
0440 A systemic review and meta-analysis of exhaled nitric oxide in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: relationship to pulmonary functio...
Fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) has been implicated as a pulmonary biomarker in various respiratory disease, including COPD. Measurement of FeNO is a simple, non-invasive tool for assessing airway inflammation. Neverthless, the usefulness of FeNO measurements in COPD patient in clinical pract...
0377 Reproductive effects of working night and rotating shifts.
Recent studies suggest that shift workers who experience exposure to light at night could be at increased risk for adverse reproductive outcomes. Defined by cyclical patterns of circulating hormones, the reproductive system is vulnerable to shifts in circadian rhythms, either through sleep disturban...
0133 Increased risk of spontaneous abortion and menstrual aberrations in female workers in semiconductor industry, South Korea.
We examined reproductive risk among female workers in Korea. Based on the claim data of the National Health Insurance from 2008 to 2012, we estimated age-specific rates of spontaneous abortion (SA) and menstrual aberration (MA) among women aged 20 to 39 years, and then compared them between exposure...
0134 Prevalence of exposure to occupational carcinogens among ethnic minority workers in Australia.
Although several studies have estimated the prevalence of occupational carcinogens in the general population, little is known about exposure to occupational carcinogens among ethnic minority workers. The aims of this study were to: estimate the prevalence of occupational exposure to carcinogens amon...
