OBJECTIVES To compare the concentrations of inorganic fibres in the lungs in cases of mesothelioma and controls: to determine whether concentrations of retained asbestos fibres differ with the different exposures identified from interview; and to investigate the existence of a cut off point in concentrations of asbestos fibres that indicates occupational exposure. METHODS Case-control study; 147 confirmed cases of mesothelioma and 122 controls identified from deaths occurring in four… CONTINUE READING
