In a group of 37 cement workers, eight retired cement workers and 20 shipbuilding control workers - all with the symptoms of chronic bronchitis - forced expiratory volumes were followed during a two-year period. The values of controlled ventilatory indices in all three compared groups show a tendency to become lower. However, FEV1.0-FVC % was significantly reduced only in the group of cement workers. The FEV1.0 was also significantly lower only in active and retired cement workers. When smoking habit was considered separately, cement workers-smokers had significantly reduced FEV1.0 and FVC values. This was not the case with the smoking controls.
