Resumen 33 subjects exposed to asbestos used in sealing agents for the motor-car industry were classified according to length of employment and exposure in relation to the TLV. One subject had a radiological picture indicative of asbestosis. Average ventilation values of the group were normal. Gas transfer studies showed a clear progressive reduction in diffusing capacity, related to the degree of risk. Determination of diffusing capacity (gas transfer) is thus an important test in the early evaluation of lung function of asbestos-exposed workers.
