Abstract
During the decade and a half since the promulgation of the OSHA Cotton Dust Standard (OSHA 1978), results of new studies have intensified interest in the hypothesis that inhalation of gram-negative bacterial endotoxin causes byssinosis. This chapter reviews historical and recent clinical and epidemiological research relevant to endotoxin as a possible causative agent of byssinosis.
