Sample text

In cases of allergens that have infectious potential, only the infection is addressed by the Treatment—for nontoxic allergens there often is no specific treatment other than avoidance. Next, the Untreated Fatality Rate is provided if known, along with notes on whether any Prophylaxis or Vaccine exists. The Shape describes the physical appearance of the microbe and for the fungi it almost always refers to the spores, not the yeast form. The mean diameter generally represents the logarithmic mean diameter estimated based on the microbe’s dimensions and, for nonspherical microbes, is computed from the algorithms described in Chap.

Bacteria can be subdivided into bacterial spores and nonsporulating bacteria. Bacterial spores include an important class of bacteria called actinomycetes. The remaining allergens and respiratory irritants are not microbes but consist of material or parts of organisms that include dust mites, dander, insect allergens, toxins, mycotoxins, endotoxins, and microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs). These categories are addressed individually in the 15 Copyright © 2006 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.
