Abstract
Research is being conducted to determine the relationship between small airways disease and cotton dust exposure in a non byssinotic population; to correlate the incidence of small airways disease with respirable dust levels in a cotton textile mill, and to estimate the site of the obstruction (large versus small airways) in a byssinotic population. A total of 600 subjects will be included by the time the study is completed. Two hundred of the subjects are to be taken from high dust areas (opening, picking, carding), 200 from low dust areas (spinning to weaving) and 200 controls from offices and warehouses. At the time of this report, only 300 subjects had been tested. (Grant No. R01-OH-00460)
