Abstract Environmental aerosolized particulates pose a potential risk to human health worldwide. Among others, high amounts of contaminants are generated especially in newly industrializing countries in the vicinity of industrial manufacturing, mining operations, but also during agricultural and natural processes. As an example of the needed multi-disciplinary diagnostic and differential diagnostic approach, we report a case of a 59-year old industrial worker who has suffered from chronic bronch...

The WHO has ranked environmental hazardous exposures in the living and working environment among the top risk factors for chronic disease mortality. Worldwide, about 40 million people die each year from noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) including cancer, diabetes, and chronic cardiovascular, neurological and lung diseases. The exposure to ambient pollution in the living and working environment is exacerbated by individual susceptibilities and lifestyle-driven factors to produce complex and complic...

An increasing number of reports describe among others respiratory symptoms in airline crew members correlated to cabin air incidents („fume event“, FE). So far, no consensus exists about the diagnostic approach. Methods: Symptom-related lung function diagnostics as well as blood and urine samples screened for organophosphates (OP) and/or various VOCs were performed. Results: Out of our nearly 300 symptomatic FE patients about 75% reported respiratory symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath a...
