Even occasional use of spray cleaners may cause asthma in adults
Date:10/12/2007

pecially air fresheners, furniture cleaners and glass-cleaners, had a particularly strong effect.

Our findings are consistent with occupational epidemiological studies in which increased asthma risk was related to professional use of sprays among both domestic and non-domestic cleaning women, wrote Dr. Zock. This indicates a relevant contribution of spray use to the burden of asthma in adults who do the cleaning in their homes.

The design of the study was not intended to determine the biological mechanism behind the increase in asthma with exposure to cleaning sprays, but Dr. Zock and colleagues propose a number of hypotheses, including the possibility that asthma is partially irritant-induced, that sprays contain sensitizers that are specific to asthma, and/or that an inflammatory response is involved in asthma development. There is a need for researchers to conduct further studies to elucidate both the extent and mechanism of the respiratory toxicity associated with such products, noted Dr. Zock.

Despite the uncertainty of the biological mechanism, the findings have important clinical relevance. Clinicians should be aware of the potential for cleaning products used in the home to cause respiratory symptoms and possibly asthma, wrote Kenneth D. Rosenman, M.D., professor at Michigan State University, in an editorial in the same issue of the journal.

The research may have also significant implications for public health. The relative risk rates of developing adult asthma in relation to exposure to cleaning products could account for as much as 15 percent, or one in seven of adult asthma cases, wrote Dr. Zock.
