Abstract [en]

Methods: Total dust was sampled in the breathing zone of 73 subjects working with welding, cutting, grinding and in foundries such as iron, aluminium, and concrete. Stationary measurements were used to study different size fractions of particles including respirable dust, particulate matter (PM)(10) and PM2.5, the particle number concentration, the number of particles deposited in the alveoli, and total particle surface area concentration. Inflammatory markers such as interleukin-6 (IL-6), C-reactive protein (CRP), fibrinogen, D-dimer, and urate were measured in plasma or serum before the first shift after the summer vacation and after the first, second, and fourth shift. Results: The mean level of total dust in the breathing zone was 0.93 mg/m
