Disease relevance of Occupational Groups

  • The incidence rates of high serum cholesterol level and overweight in the above occupational groups were higher as compared with the prevalence of these factors in the general male population in Poland [1].
  • Hypertension can be considered work-related and, therefore, compensable when it[occurs] causes cardiac disease in occupational groups for whom cardiac ailments are legislated as being work-incurred and in workers exposed to certain nitrate explosives [2].
  • CONCLUSIONS: The presence of manic and psychotic symptoms with fever and high transaminase and/or CPK levels in high risk occupational groups during rainy periods should alert the physician to the possibility of leptospirosis [3].

Gene context of Occupational Groups

  • Therapeutic drug use during pregnancy: a comparison in four European countries. OECM Working Group. Occupational Exposures and Congenital Anomalies [15].
  • The prevalence of a personal or family history of atopy was significantly lower in the occupational group (7%) than the non-occupational group (15%) (P less than 0.005) [11].
  • PSP appears to favor no geographical, racial, ethnic or occupational group, though there is anecdotal evidence for hydrocarbon exposure as a candidate etiologic factor [16].
  • The relationship between completeness of clinical records and K-ras mutations among cases with RM could not be accounted by age, gender, and occupational group [17].
  • The rates of first surgery for CTS were compared between occupational groups and the total adult population with the standardised incidence ratio (SIR) method [18].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Occupational Groups

  • In a study of three high-risk occupational groups using Rose Bengal and complement fixation tests, the highest prevalence (7.1%) was found among dairy farm workers and owners in randomly selected dairy-cattle farms, followed by veterinary personnel (4.5%) and inhabitants in pastoralist areas (3.0%) [19].
  • Studies were carried out in the above occupational groups in the Province of Alberta. A survey of male grain handlers failed to demonstrate significant differences between their serum total IgE levels and allergen specific IgE profiles and those of a control group of sedentary workers [20].
