31 CONCLUSIONS: Our findings extend the 2004 conclusions of the Institute of Medicine by showing that mold levels in dust were associated with new-onset asthma in this damp indoor environment. Hydrophilic fungi and ergosterol as measures of fungal biomass may have promise as markers of risk of buildingrelated respiratory diseases in damp indoor environments. Environ Health Perspect 116:45 50 (2008). Fungal Research Group Foundation

32 Rhinosinusitis and mold as risk factors for asthma symptoms in occupants of a water-damaged building J.-H. Park, K. Kreiss, J. M. Cox-Ganser - National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Division of Respiratory Disease Studies, Morgantown, WV, USA The BR-rhinosinusitis symptom group had higher odds for developing BR-asthma symptoms [odds ratio (OR) = 2.2; 95% confidence interval (CI) = ] in any subsequent survey compared to those without BR-rhinosinusitis symptoms. The BR-rhinosinusitis symptom group with higher fungal exposure within the building had an OR of 7.4 (95% CI = ) for developing BR-asthma symptoms, compared to the lower fungal exposure group without BR-rhinosinusitis symptoms. Our findings suggest that rhinosinusitis associated with occupancy of waterdamaged buildings may be a sentinel for increased risk for asthma onset in such buildings.

45 NIOSH RECOMMENDATIONS Moisture-damaged or moldy building materials should be remediated (cleaned and repaired or replaced) precautions taken to prevent remediation workers and building occupants from being exposed to mold or dust during the remediation Prevention and control of building dampness will minimize the chance that occupants will develop respiratory symptoms and disease from exposures related to the dampness.

46 ERMI Although MSQPCR provides a method for identifying and quantifying fungi mold, there had been a lack of a standardized method for describing the mold burden in a home. The EPA readily acknowledged that MSQPCR and ERMI have not been validated or peer reviewed by EPA for public use. The agency considers MSQPCR and ERMI to be research tools not intended for public use.

47 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY A panel of seven scientists selected according to their background and expertise in the fields of interest was invited to review the methods and the recommendations made by the DSP de Montréal. The state of a building can have an impact on health, and the health effects of chronic water infiltration are well recognized. Health effects of damp environments are well recognized, and actions should be undertaken whether there are health effects or not their presence only making the situation more unacceptable. Public release pending French translation

48 Conclusion There is sufficient clinical and experimental evidence to recognize non-allergic toxic health reactions. Research gap: lack of good exposure assessment and correlations with observed toxic health reactions Observed health effects show a need for preventive and corrective actions Precautionary principle

Allergy About 10% of the population is allergic to one or more types of mold Toxicity Is Occurrence limited almost exclusively to immune-compromised patients, including those with transplants, chemotherapy, AIDS, neonates, etc.? Memory loss and cognitive disorders Hair-loss Depression

54 When is mold considered toxic? Mycotoxins are contained only spores Mycotoxins are always present Mycotoxins are also found in mycelia fragments and dust "Current scientific evidence does not support the proposition that human health has been adversely affected by inhaled mycotoxins in the home, school, or office environment." ACOEM Answer*: c

55 What is a safe level of mold in air? There is no specific number that defines either safe or unsafe mold exposure. Some have proposed normal airborne mold exposure levels, however none of these have been adopted by regulatory agencies. For people with allergies to mold no safe level of exposure exists Standards or Threshold Values for airborne concentrations of mold, or mold spores, have not been adopted in the US. Answer*: a-d
