Immune response in Occupational metal fume inhaling workers
Professor Keith Palmer and his team from Southampton General Hospital, studied the inflammatory response in occupational metal fume inhaling workers. The research work is aimed at studying the environmental risk of developing infections and diseases due to occupational exposure to metal fume.

Researchers found that the inflammatory response in Metal fume workers to be low compared to the normal persons and an absence of an immune response shows that these workers are more prone to infections and a deficit immune response may be due to premature death of lung defense cells and the results of the work has been published by the researchers in the Journal European Respiratory Journal.
