Meeting to highlight health impacts of smell and taste
Date:7/15/2008

read condition, treatment options are limited and often ineffective. This symposium will cover several studies including clinical measurements at Monell Chemical Senses Center and Thomas Jefferson University. NIDCD-funded researchers there, led by Monell's Nancy Rawson, Ph.D., and Beverly Cowart, Ph.D., are examining people with chronic sinusitis and measuring key characteristics of their disease. These studies are expected to provide valuable insights on factors of chronic sinusitis that erode the sense of smell. (Tuesday, July 22, Symposium, 7:00 to 9:15 p.m., Grand Ballroom B, and Friday, July 25, Poster Session IV, 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., Pacific Concourse, Poster #385)

Helping Firefighters Preserve their Sense of Smell

Firefighters know they are putting theirs lives on the line when they rush into a burning building, but may not be aware of the potential risk to their sense of smell. Researchers led by Pamela Dalton, Ph.D., at the Monell Chemical Senses Center studied Philadelphia firefighters with varying years of experience and found that reduced sense of smell was associated with greater years of employment. Firefighters often do not know which chemicals might be present in a fire and are regularly exposed to a variety of chemical gases and fumes. Loss of smell will not only reduce a firefighter's quality of life, but also represents an occupational hazard as it may diminish his or her ability to smell smoke or burning wires. The NIDCD-funded researchers say their results illustrate the importance of using protective respiratory devices and monitoring firefighters' sense of smell. They also are conducting a long-term study of new firefighter recruits. (Wednesday, July 23, Poster Session II, 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., Pacific Concourse, Poster #169)
