some ne edle-like crystals; the fibrocytes are few and tne tissue stains poorly. The atheromatous area in the deeper portion of the intima abuts on compressed media, which also shows some hyaline and degenerative appearances, with globules of fat and infiltration with small round cells (chiefly lymphocytes) . Some small vascular channels contain laked erythrocytes. The adventitia contains many dilated capillaries. 
FIFTEEN CASES OF PLEURAL MESOTHELIOMA ASSOCIATED WITH OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE TO ASBESTOS IN VICTORIA
  • J. Milne

  • 1969
TLDR
Fifteen cases of pleural mesothelioma occurring in Victoria are described and Crocidolite or blue asbestos would seem to be particularly potent in the induction of these tumours.
Asbestosis in a Japanese Macaque (Macaca fuscata)
TLDR
The first report of spontaneous asbestosis in a nonhuman animal is found in a female Japanese macaque over 25 years of age that died from senility.
ASBESTOS EXPOSURE AND PLEURAL MESOTHELIOMAS
DISCUSSION The illness in this case was proven myoglobinuria associated with necrosis of skeletal muscle, as evidenced by the muscle biopsy and serum transaminase estimation. The precipitating factor
Retrospective review of pemetrexed with or without platinum in malignant mesothelioma: The Australian ‘Special Access Scheme’ experience
TLDR
The experience of patients treated on the Australian ‘Special Access Scheme’ at three major thoracic oncology units is reviewed, finding there is only limited data reflecting teaching hospital experience outside a clinical trial.
Thirty-two cases of mesothelioma in Victoria, Australia: a retrospective survey related to occupational asbestos exposure.
  • J. Milne
  • Medicine
    British journal of industrial medicine
  • 1976
TLDR
The occupational history was as effective a method of assessing 'true' asbestos exposure as the pulmonary asbestos body count in the tumour series, and the rare association of mesothelioma with types of asbestos other than crocikolite may not exist and could be explicable.
PLEURAL EFFECTS OF INDIUM PHOSPHIDE IN B6C3F1 MICE: NONFIBROUS PARTICULATE INDUCED PLEURAL FIBROSIS
TLDR
Aspiration of InP produced pleural fibrosis that was histologically similar to lesions caused by chronic inhalation exposure, and in a shorter time period, which was used to provide an initial characterization of the progression of pleural lesions cause by InP.
LRRN4 and UPK3B Are Markers of Primary Mesothelial Cells
TLDR
Interestingly MSLN levels appear to be upregulated in the mesothelioma lines compared to the primary mesothelial cells, while LRRN4 and UPK3B, are either lost or down-regulated.
Epidemiology of asbestos-related diseases.
TLDR
Over 100 epidemiological studies are reviewed, dating back to the first case of asbestos-associated disease reported by Montague Murray in 1906, and the interaction of asbestos and cigarette smoking is discussed in great detail.
Malignant Mesothelioma in Australia, 1945–2002
  • J. Leigh, T. Driscoll
  • Medicine
    International journal of occupational and environmental health
  • 2003
TLDR
Australia's high incidence of mesothelioma is related to high past asbestos use, of all fiber types, in a wide variety of settings and is expected to be about 18,000 by 2020, with about 11,000 yet to appear.
Oesophageal ruptures and perforations — a review
TLDR
The results show that not all cases of oesophageal perforations require immediate surgical exploration and that the results of surgical treatment are excellent if the diagnosis is made early.

The Pathology of Asbestosis with Reference to Lung Function
TLDR
The first object of the present communication is to record some necropsy findings in detail and attempt a correlation between clinical and pathological findings, since these six cases represent the deaths so far in a larger series of 40 patients studied clinically by Williams and Hugh-Jones (1960a, 1960b).
Mode of Action of Some Toxic Substances
TLDR
Alarm is not infrequently expressed that the traces of some of the new insecticides which may find their way into the authors' food could eventually prove injurious to the health of the consumer in a manner usually not specified.
