Post-injury and resolution response to repetitive inhalation exposure to agricultural organic dust in mice.

Safety (Basel) 2017 21;3(1). Epub 2017 Feb 21.

Pulmonary, Critical Care, Sleep & Allergy Division; Department of Internal Medicine, University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), 985990 Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE 68198-5990, USA.

Inhalation of organic dusts in agricultural environments causes airway inflammatory diseases. Despite advances in understanding the airway response to dust-induced inflammation, less is known about the transition from lung injury to repair and recovery. The objective of this study was to define the post-inflammation homeostasis events following organic dust-induced lung injury. Read More

Alcohol Inhibits Organic Dust-induced ICAM-1 Expression on Bronchial Epithelial Cells.

Safety (Basel) 2017 Mar 7;3(1). Epub 2017 Jan 7.

Pulmonary, Critical Care, Sleep & Allergy Division of the Department of Internal Medicine, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE, 68198; USA.

Aims: Exposure to dusts/bioaerosols in concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) results in inflammatory lung diseases in workers. Hog CAFOs dust extract (HDE) increases expression of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), neutrophil adhesion, and TNFα release in bronchial epithelial cells. Alcohol consumption is increasingly recognized to impair lung immunity. Read More

Perception of Job-Related Risk, Training, and Use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) among Latino Immigrant Hog CAFO Workers in Missouri: A Pilot Study.

Safety (Basel) 2016 9;2(4):25. Epub 2016 Nov 9.

Center for Reducing Health Disparities, College of Public Health, University of Nebraska Medical Center, 984340 Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE 68198-4340, USA.

Hog production in the United States is a large industry that has seen dramatic changes over the last few decades. Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) are growing in number throughout the country. This pilot study explores the perception of risk, receipt of work-related training, provision and usage of personal protective equipment (PPE), and prevention preferences of Latino immigrant hog CAFO workers in Missouri.
