Título Measurement of metallic particles extracted from the lung parenchyma of two electricians and one electrotechnician
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1993, Vol.54, No.9, p.564-568. Illus. 8 ref.
Resumen X-ray spectroscopy and laser microprobe mass analysis were used to determine the chemical nature of particles extracted from the lung parenchyma of two electricians and one electrotechnician who had died of lung cancer. The retained particles were qualitatively representative of these workers' work history (e.g. the electrician who had worked in a mine had retained more silicates than the two others). The concentration of nickel in the lungs of these workers was higher than the concentrations measured in the lungs of 39 other workers who died of different types of cancers.
