This List of Texts on Clinical Mold, Pathogens, Allergens and other particles describes the medical health effects of mold and indoor particlessuch as animal dander, cat, dog, mouse dander and dust, asbestos, fiberglass from insulation or other sources, dust mite fecals, house dust, insect fragments, insect hairs, insect fecals, talc, and ultra fine sub micron particles. Dust from the world trade center collapse, and other particles have entries in this list.
