What are lab animal allergies and occupational asthma?
Laboratory Animal Allergies (LAA) and Occupational Asthma (OA) develop from exposure to animal allergens, and are among the most common, serious occupational diseases of workers exposed to animals in laboratories.
Please note that Principal Investigators are ultimately responsible for the safety of their laboratory staff.
