Title Epidemiological, immunological and genetical aspects of asbestosis
Bibliographic information 1982, Vol.30, No.3-4, p.135-331. Illus. Bibl. Price: Zł.130.00.
Abstract This issue is devoted to the proceedings of an international conference held 24-26 Mar. 1981 at Wrocław, Poland. Sections cover: epidemiological studies in various professions in the Federal Republic of Germany, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Sweden, Turkey, Poland, and Hungary; immunology and genetics of asbestos-related diseases (use of electron microscopy in analysing autopsy and biopsy material, immunological monitoring of an exposed population, antigen typing in relation to long-term effects of exposure, autoimmunity in asbestos-exposed persons); experimental and pathological studies (asbestos-induced lung diseases, asbestos and mesothelioma in the German Democratic Republic, combination effects in chemical carcinogenesis, factors affecting benzo(a)pyrene activation in mammalian cells, carrier function of asbestos fibres in benzo(a)pyrene mutagenicity); dose-response relations and clinical studies (worker exposure in asbestos-processing plants, morbidity in asbestos miners, identification and effects of chrysotile, radiological studies).
