  • Lack of Association between Cytokine Gene Polymorphisms and Silicosis and Pulmonary Tuberculosis in Chinese Iron Miners: Fen Wu, et al. Department of Occupational Health and Toxicology, School of Public Health, Fudan University, China—Silicosis is a fibrotic lung disease produced by the inhalation and deposition of silica dust. The association between silicosis and pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) has been well established. Cytokines participate in the development and progression of silicosis and… CONTINUE READING
