Abstract
Final progress report of Grant No. R01-OH-00302-03, under which major accomplishments were made in six research categories: status and method of study of byssinosis; dose response of textile workers to cotton dust; significance of cigarette smoking as a co-factor; pulmonary pathophysiology in byssinosis; etiology and pathogenesis of byssinosis, and intervention studies and control methods. Byssinosis and bronchitis are prevalent among 5 to 60 percent of workers in North Carolina cotton and cotton synthetic blend mills. These prevalences have a linear correlation with levels of respirable dust (below 15 microns) between 0.1 and 0.75 milligram per cubic meter. Cigarette smoking increases liability for byssinosis at all dust levels. Washing cotton and other control measures may eradicate the byssinosis problem. The report includes 14 annotated bibliographic references on byssinosis.
