Steiner, D; Jeggli, S; Bernard, A; Hotz, Philipp (2003). Lungenerkrankungen bei müllstaubexponierten Personen. Praxis, 92(10):436-440.

Abstract

The current cohort study in the canton of Zurich is investigating respiratory diseases in waste collectors. Therefore, a clinical history was taken and lung function tests and measurement of the Clara cell protein concentration were carried out. The first results show no elevation of the prevalence of asthma or other lung diseases in waste collectors. Compared with control subjects, waste collectors have a lower forced expiratory volume in the first second and a higher mean Clara cell protein concentration. The prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors such as smoking, obesity and arterial hypertension which are not caused by the occupation is high. Indeed, about 50% of all participants are hypertensive.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
