BACKGROUND Man-made vitreous fibers (MMVF's) have some structural features similar to those found in asbestos. This has lead to concern that exposure to MMVF's could increase the risk of respiratory cancer. METHODS Bibliographic resources were used to identify 10 case-control and 10 cohort studies, which analyzed the relationship between exposure to MMVF's and cancer of the respiratory system.
