||Pleural mesothelioma in Sweden: An analysis of the incidence according to the use of asbestos
||Feb. 1999, Vol.56, No.2, p.110-113. Illus. 20 ref.
||The annual incidence of pleural mesothelioma attributable to occupational exposure to asbestos is today larger than all fatal occupational accidents in Sweden. The first asbestos regulation was adopted in 1964 and in the mid 1970s imports of raw asbestos decreased drastically. Yet there is no obvious indication that the preventive measures have decreased the risk of pleural mesothelioma. The long latency indicates that the effects of preventive measures in the 1970s could first be evaluated around 2005. Topics: asbestos; cohort study; hazard evaluation; latency; morbidity; pleural mesothelioma; prohibition of use; statistical trends; Sweden.
