Abstract: Respiratory illness is very common in agro based and wood industries. The changes in the lung are subtle at first but very progressive. A correlation of the biochemical parameter to the spirometric values of lung function parameters may be useful in selecting an alternative test parameter to assess lung function in conditions where performing spirometry is difficult. Assessment of inflammatory marker, c-reactive protein (CRP) along with pulmonary function test parameters, forced expiratory volume at first second (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC) and their ratio (FEV1/FVC) in the exposed and comparing with controls is the main aim of the study. Correlation of biomarkers with pulmonary function test results.
