Prevalence, pathogenesis and control of byssinosis.

The aims of the project are to test materials from cotton dust against cell systems in-vitro; to determine whether effects on lung in-vitro are predicted by leukocyte chemotaxis, ciliary inhibition and fibroblast proliferation; to determine chronic effects of materials which produce acute toxic effects; and to relate cellular pathology to airway narrowing in animals and man. During the grant period, lacinilene C-7-methyl-ether is identified as the green fluorescent material which is in aqueous and organic solvent extracts of cotton trash and carefully prepared isolated cotton bracts. The process of purification of the material is described. (Grant No. R01-OH-00511)
