Epidemiological environmental study of lead acid battery workers 2. acute effects of sulfuric acid on the respiratory system

, : Epidemiological environmental study of lead acid battery workers 2. acute effects of sulfuric acid on the respiratory system. Environmental Research 35(1): 11-29

Workers (225) in 5 Pb acid battery plants were administered a questionnaire containing work-related symptoms, underwent spirometry and had personal samples for H2SO4 taken over the shift. Most personal samples were < 1 mg/m3 H2SO4. Mass median aerodynamic diameter of H2SO4 from area samples in the formation areas was 2.6-10 .mu.m. Workers with a higher exposure to acid did not have an increased rate of acute work-related symptoms. Changes in pulmonary function over the shift were not related to levels of airborne Pb or acid, sex, age or smoking status. In acclimated workers, there was no evidence of acute symptoms or reductions in pulmonary function over the shift at concentrations < 1 mg/m3.

The integrin alpha-4-beta-1 and its counter receptor vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) mediate well-described cell-cell interactions that are critical for immune function. However, these receptors also mediate cell-cell interactions that...
