About this section


CDC:3 Indoor environmental quality (IEQ) refers to the quality of a building’s environment in relation to the health and wellbeing of those who occupy space within it. IEQ is determined by many factors, including lighting, air quality, and damp conditions. Workers are often concerned that they have symptoms or health conditions from exposures to contaminants in the buildings where they work. One reason for this concern is that their symptoms often get better when they are not in the building. While research has shown that some respiratory symptoms and illnesses can be associated with damp buildings, it is still unclear what measurements of indoor contaminants show that workers are at risk for disease. In most instances where a worker and his or her physician suspect that the building environment is causing a specific health condition, the information available from medical tests and tests of the environment is not sufficient to establish which contaminants are responsible. Despite uncertainty about what to measure and how to interpret what is measured, research shows that building-related symptoms are associated with building characteristics, including dampness, cleanliness, and ventilation characteristics.

MalaCards based summary: Sick Building Syndrome is related to asthma and adrenal carcinoma. An important gene associated with Sick Building Syndrome is POMC (proopiomelanocortin), and among its related pathways are Peptide hormone metabolism and Adipocytokine signaling pathway. The compounds shu 9119 and alpha msh have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, eye and colon, and related mouse phenotypes are tumorigenesis and immune system.

Disease Ontology:9 An extrinsic allergic alveolitis that is characterized by a set of symptoms such as headache, fatigue, eye irritation, and breathing difficulties that affect workers in modern airtight office buildings. the disease is caused by indoor pollutants (as formaldehyde fumes, particulate matter, or microorganisms), and the symptoms tend to disappear when affected individuals leave the building.
