Asthma can be caused and aggravated by occupational factors in working adults. Agents that are responsible for occupational asthma are either sensitizers or irritants. Prevention is important to reduce the impact of the disease. This new edition of Asthma in the Workplace focuses on recent developments that are reflected by an impressive addition to the scientific literature. This fifth edition retains key elements that have made the success of previous editions: worldwide contributors, variety of topics covered, presentation of key aspects using workplace scenarios and case histories.
