Contemporary challenges for enterprise document management (EDM) include managing a mixture of technologies, recognizing the needs of several user roles and groups, and pursuing effective processes utilizing documents in digital form. Responding to these challenges means gathering and scrutinizing organizational metadata describing the organization's(More)
The genre theory has been earlier introduced as a means for analyzing organizational communication. The terms hard and soft information genre have been employed to refer to the extent and explicity of the rules that the genres are enacted by in a particular communication community. People have widely learned to use genres without explicit rules for their(More)
Besides asbestos exposure, the factors that determine susceptibility to malignant mesothelioma are unknown. We evaluated the risk of GSTM1 null genotype and slow acetylation-associated NAT2 genotype for malignant mesothelioma in relation to asbestos exposure. Both the GSTM1 null genotype and the NAT2 slow acetylator genotype placed individuals at about(More)
We studied exposure to asbestos, pulmonary fibrosis, fiber count, and fiber size in relation to the lobar origin of lung cancer in 90 consecutive patients. Among the 32 patients with a history of occupational exposure to asbestos, 22 were construction workers. The proportion of lower-lobe tumors increased with the duration of exposure from 45% in those(More)
The main polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-inducible cytochrome P450 was studied in lung tissue from 57 lung cancer patients by immunohistochemistry, using a monoclonal antibody (1-7-1) that recognizes P450IA1 and P450IA2 isozymes. The intensity of immunostaining was compared with the pulmonary activity of a P450IA1-dependent enzyme, aryl hydrocarbon(More)
Studies on somatic mutations in lung cancers associated with cigarette smoking and asbestos exposure are few. We investigated prevalence of mutations in the p53 and K-ras genes in lung tumors from smokers with and without asbestos exposure at work. For K-ras mutations, the study was an extension of an earlier analysis. Nearly all of the 105 consecutive(More)
Five to seven percent of lung tumours are estimated to occur because of occupational asbestos exposure. Using cDNA microarrays, we have earlier detected asbestos exposure-related genomic regions in lung cancer. The region at 2p was one of those that differed most between asbestos-exposed and non-exposed patients. Now, we evaluated genomic alterations at(More)
The number, type, and size of retained asbestos fibers were measured by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) in lung tissues of 10 workers who had died from lung cancer or mesothelioma. The levels were 190-3000 x 10(6) fibers/g of dry tissue in three crocidolite sprayers, 6-39 x 10(6) fibers/g of dry tissue in two asbestos product workers and 13-280 x 10(6)(More)
This paper discusses the use of genre theory for analysing information content of structured documents and mixed media training material. We describe an analysis phase of an ongoing research aimed at information reuse from Operation and Maintenance (O&M) manuals in training, consisting of spoken, multimedia and textual content. The content of training was(More)
