Abstract
Cotton textile mill workers diagnosed as byssinotic and nonbyssinotic are found to show no statistically different responses to various kinds of cotton dust extracts in aerosol form, the response of byssinotic patients being in all cases greater. The active agent of cotton dust in production of byssinosis is found to be water soluble, filterable at 0.22 microns, nonvolatile at 40 degrees centigrade, and nondialyzable, but possibly not active only in that group of patients identified in the study.
