Abstract
Traditionally, the concept of cotton dust-related disease focused on acute airway responses. A possible connection of long-term exposure to cotton dust with chronic obstructive airway disease was not addressed until the past two decades. This review summarizes the latest findings relevant to this topic that were observed from longitudinal cohort studies and discusses the relation between acute airway responses and chronic losses of lung function.
