Abstract
During the 2000-2001 season in Canada, a newly identified oculorespiratory syndrome (ORS) was observed in patients after immunization with inactivated influenza vaccine. ORS was associated with a high proportion of microaggregates of unsplit virions in the implicated vaccine and had clinical features suggesting delayed-onset hypersensitivity. We explore the association between in vitro cytokine balance (type 1 vs. type 2) and clinical ORS after influenza vaccination. We report the balance of interferon (IFN)-gamma, interleukin (IL)-10, IL-5, and IL-13 expression by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) among unvaccinated, vaccinated ORS-affected, and vaccinated ORS-unaffected persons after in vitro challenge with implicated and nonimplicated vaccines. Antigen-stimulated PBMC from vaccinated persons produced significantly more IFN-gamma than did those from unvaccinated persons. There was a statistically significant type 2 polarization among unvaccinated compared with vaccinated persons. Although vaccinated ORS-affected individuals had less of a type 1 basis than did vaccinated unaffected individuals, this difference was not statistically significant.

Abstract
Wood trimmers and planing operators from two separate sawmill populations (N = 303 and 170) were studied by serology assessment and a self-administered questionnaire. IgG antibodies to Rhizopus microsporus ssp. rhizopodiformis, Paecilomyces variotii, and Aspergillus fumigatus were measured by ELISA. The questionnaire included questions about general respiratory symptoms and symptoms after handling moldy timber. Personal exposure of wood trimmers to mold spores and wood dust was measured in one part of the sawmills. R. microsporus was the most prevalent mold assessed by serology. Antibody levels were higher and symptoms suggestive of mucous membrane irritation, chronic nonspecific lung disease, allergic alveolitis, and organic dust toxic syndrome were more frequently reported by wood trimmers than by planing operators. The mean level of IgG antibodies to R. microsporus in sawmill workers working in the same work area was the best predictor of symptoms in both populations. The consistent results indicate that exposure to spores of R. microsporus may cause several respiratory symptoms in wood trimmers.

Abstract
Of the miners in poor health, groups have been identified at high risk for development of respiratory, cardiovascular, and neural pathologies (n = 30). Treatment and prophylactic complexes were differentiated and implemented in the miners while on vacation in a sanatorium-preventorium setting. Efficacies are shown of differentiated methods for promotion of the health of those miners having been assigned to different groups at risk for development of pathologies of the respiratory organs, the cardiovascular, and the nervous system while on tariff vacation. The promotion-of-health courses have led to normalization of the immune and biochemical statuses in 68 percent of miners secondary to activation of chief links of cell-mediated, humoral immunity, factors of nonspecific bodily resistance and parameters for fat metabolism.

Abstract
The study consisted in comparison of the microecology and the parameters of the humoral immunity of the biotopes of the respiratory and urogenital tracts under normal conditions and in inflammatory processes caused by bacterial agents. The study revealed significant changes in the microbiocenosis of the respiratory and urogenital tracts, caused by decline of indigenous microflora and increase of the content of conditionally pathogenic microorganisms. These changes depended on the degree of the infectious process severity. Measurement of the humoral immunity parameters revealed a significant correlation between the content of conditionally pathogenic microorganisms and the levels of M and A immunoglobulins, as well as secretory IgA and free secretory component (sc) in the vaginal secretions of patients with non-specific inflammatory diseases of the genital tract, as well as G and A immunoglobulins, secretory IgA, and sc in the saliva of patients with chronic inflammatory diseases of the respiratory tract.

Abstract
Respiratory disease is a major cause of morbidity in young people. It is now recognized that atopy plays an important role in the development of chronic respiratory symptoms in children.
To examine the determinants and consequences of serum total and specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) in a general population sample of Québec children and adolescents.
In 1999, 2349 children and adolescents (nine, 13 or 16 years of age) who had participated in a respiratory symptom and disease questionnaire had their total IgE measured. Of these participants, a subsample of 451 children and adolescents was analyzed to detect antibodies to eight specific allergens (ie, allergens of dust mites [Dermatophagoides farinae and Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus], cat, dog, ragweed, Timothy grass, mould [alternaria] and cockroach).
The geometric mean of the total IgE was 44.4 U/mL among all participants. Concentrations were higher in boys and increased with age. More than 41% of the participants were sensitized to at least one specific allergen. Such sensitization was strongly associated with the occurrence of respiratory conditions and symptoms, namely asthma, wheezing and rhinitis. Family history, school location and ethnic origin had an impact on the prevalence of atopy and total IgE levels.
Allergic sensitization is a major determinant in the development of asthma, wheezing and rhinitis in children and adolescents in the province of Québec.
