Snap-fit assembly and upper limb functional limitations in automotive production workers: a nested case-control study.

Johan Ohlander, Mekail-Cem Keskin, Stephan W Weiler, Joachim Stork, Katja Radon,

OBJECTIVES:The use of snap-fits in car-part assembling has developed into an industrial standard. Cross-sectional evidence indicates, however, that this assembling process might adversely affect workers' upper limb function. The objective of this study was to analyze incident cases of upper limb functional limitations (ULFL) in relation to exposure to snap-fit ... Read more >>

Entrepreneurship, Information, and Growth.

Devin Bunten, Stephan Weiler, Stephan Weiler, Sammy Zahran,

We examine the contribution to economic growth of entrepreneurial "marketplace information" within a regional endogenous growth framework. Entrepreneurs are posited to provide an input to economic growth through the information revealed by their successes and failures. We empirically identify this information source with the regional variation in establishment births and ... Read more >>

Maternal exposure to hurricane destruction and fetal mortality.

Sammy Zahran, Ian M Breunig, Bruce G Link, Jeffrey G Snodgrass, Stephan Weiler, Howard W Mielke,

<h4>Background</h4>The majority of research documenting the public health impacts of natural disasters focuses on the well-being of adults and their living children. Negative effects may also occur in the unborn, exposed to disaster stressors when critical organ systems are developing and when the consequences of exposure are large.<h4>Methods</h4>We exploit spatial ...

Sammy Zahran, Ian M Breunig, Bruce G Link, Jeffrey G Snodgrass, Stephan Weiler,

<h4>Objectives</h4>We analyzed singleton births to determine the relationship between birth weight and altitude exposure.<h4>Methods</h4>We analyzed 715,213 singleton births across 74 counties from the western states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Washington from January 1, 2000, to December 31, 2000. Birth data were obtained ... Read more >>

Daily variation in natural disaster casualties: information flows, safety, and opportunity costs in tornado versus hurricane strikes.

Sammy Zahran, Daniele Tavani, Stephan Weiler,

Casualties from natural disasters may depend on the day of the week they strike. With data from the Spatial Hazard Events and Losses Database for the United States (SHELDUS), daily variation in hurricane and tornado casualties from 5,043 tornado and 2,455 hurricane time/place events is analyzed. Hurricane forecasts provide at-risk ... Read more >>

Associations between standardized school performance tests and mixtures of Pb, Zn, Cd, Ni, Mn, Cu, Cr, Co, and V in community soils of New Orleans.

Sammy Zahran, Howard W Mielke, Stephan Weiler, Lynn Hempel, Kenneth J Berry, Christopher R Gonzales,

In New Orleans a strong inverse association was previously identified between community soil lead and 4th grade school performance. This study extends the association to zinc, cadmium, nickel, manganese, copper, chromium, cobalt, and vanadium in community soil and their comparative effects on 4th grade school performance. Adjusting for poverty, food ... Read more >>

Nonlinear associations between blood lead in children, age of child, and quantity of soil lead in metropolitan New Orleans.

Sammy Zahran, Howard W Mielke, Stephan Weiler, Christopher R Gonzales,

Previous studies identified a curvilinear association between aggregated blood lead (BL) and soil lead (SL) data in New Orleans census tracts. In this study we investigate the relationships between SL (mg/kg), age of child, and BL (μg/dL) of 55,551 children in 280 census tracts in metropolitan New Orleans, 2000 to ... Read more >>

Maternal benzene exposure and low birth weight risk in the United States: a natural experiment in gasoline reformulation.

Sammy Zahran, Stephan Weiler, Howard W Mielke, Anita Alves Pena,

We investigate the relationship between maternal exposure to benzene and birth weight outcomes for resident births in the United States in 1996 and 1999, taking advantage of a natural experiment afforded by the regulation of benzene content of gasoline in various American cities. Regression results show that a unit increase ... Read more >>

Economics of disaster risk, social vulnerability, and mental health resilience.

Sammy Zahran, Lori Peek, Jeffrey G Snodgrass, Stephan Weiler, Lynn Hempel,

We investigate the relationship between exposure to Hurricanes Katrina and/or Rita and mental health resilience by vulnerability status, with particular focus on the mental health outcomes of single mothers versus the general public. We advance a measurable notion of mental health resilience to disaster events. We also calculate the economic ... Read more >>

Maternal hurricane exposure and fetal distress risk.

Sammy Zahran, Jeffrey G Snodgrass, Lori Peek, Stephan Weiler,

Logistic regression and spatial analytic techniques are used to model fetal distress risk as a function of maternal exposure to Hurricane Andrew. First, monthly time series compare the proportion of infants born distressed in hurricane affected and unaffected areas. Second, resident births are analyzed in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, before, ... Read more >>

The impact of shift work induced chronic circadian disruption on IL-6 and TNF-alpha immune responses.

Anke van Mark, Stephan W Weiler, Marcel Schröder, Andreas Otto, Kamila Jauch-Chara, David A Groneberg, Michael Spallek, Richard Kessel, Barbara Kalsdorf,

<h4>Aim</h4>Sleep disturbances induce proinflammatory immune responses, which might increase cardiovascular disease risk. So far the effects of acute sleep deprivation and chronic sleep illnesses on the immune system have been investigated. The particular impact of shift work induced chronic circadian disruption on specific immune responses has not been addressed so ... Read more >>

New Orleans before and after Hurricanes Katrina/Rita: a quasi-experiment of the association between soil lead and children's blood lead.

Sammy Zahran, Howard W Mielke, Christopher R Gonzales, Eric T Powell, Stephan Weiler,

Prior to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita (HKR), significant associations were noted between soil lead (SL) and blood lead (BL) in New Orleans. Engineering failure of New Orleans levees and canal walls after HKR set the stage for a quasi-experiment to evaluate BL responses by 13 306 children to reductions in ... Read more >>

Correlates shift work with increased risk of gastrointestinal complaints or frequency of gastritis or peptic ulcer in H. pylori-infected shift workers?

Anke van Mark, Michael Spallek, David A Groneberg, Richard Kessel, Stephan W Weiler,

<h4>Aim</h4>There is an ongoing discussion whether work under shift work conditions enhances the ulcerogenic potential of Helicobacter pylori infections. This may be induced by a disruption of the circadian rhythm. The present study assessed whether there is an association between H. pylori infection and an increased risk of gastrointestinal complaints ... Read more >>

Stephan W Weiler, Kay Peter Foeh, Anke van Mark, Rene Touissant, Nina Sonntag, Annette Gaessler, Johannes Schulze, Richard Kessel,

<h4>Objectives</h4>In most industrialized countries musculoskeletal disorders contribute considerably (25%) to illness induced work absence. A special interest to reduce worker absences exists in highly specialized industries such as jet manufacturing, where specific knowledge is hard to replace. We investigated the reduction and sustainability in sick leave days by a workplace ... Read more >>
