Epidemiological survey among workers exposed to manganese: effects on lung, central nervous system, and some biological indices.
A cross-sectional epidemiological study was carried out among 141 male subjects exposed to inorganic manganese (Mn) in a Mn oxide and salt producing plant (mean age 34.3 years; duration of exposure,… Expand
Relationship between external and internal parameters of exposure to manganese in workers from a manganese oxide and salt producing plant.
In a plant producing manganese (Mn) oxides and salts, 11 different workplaces were identified. The current exposure to airborne Mn (total dust, personal sampling, n = 80) varied from 0.07 to 8.61… Expand
Patients with myeloid malignancies bearing PDGFRB fusion genes achieve durable long-term remissions with imatinib.
Myeloid neoplasms and eosinophilia with rearrangements of PDGFRB are uncommon Philadelphia-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms. Patients are typically male, with morphologic features of a… Expand
