Abstract
The significance of sputum cytology in relation to radon daughter radiation injury is reviewed. Problems encountered in early attempts to understand the mechanism by which cancer develops are described. Techniques for studying exfoliated cells are discussed and the history of lung cancer studies among uranium (7440611) miners (SIC-1094) is described. Potential uses of sputum cytology for miners and other working groups exposed to respiratory carcinogens are discussed. The risk associated with cigarette smoking and the role of preventive therapy also are considered. The author recommends further studies involving the shifts in sputum cytology atypias for additional understanding of these phenomena.
