|Abstract||The general morbidity is being influenced to a great extent by air way diseases. Since their incidence and prevalence have been increasing, the identification of causal factors is of importance for preventive strategies.
Primary irritative, gaseous (like sulfur dioxide (80%)) as well as paniculate pollutants (like TSP) can be regarded as causal constituents.
Using the opportunity of changing levels of ambient air pollution in East Germany since 1989, the impact of SC>2 and TSP on bronchitis was investigated over the last 10 years as part of several intervention studies with children.
