Abstract
Rationale: Particle solubility may play a role in development of beryllium sensitization (BeS) and chronic beryllium disease (CBD), where more soluble materials (e.g., beryllium salts) may trigger immunologic sensitization and less soluble materials (e.g., beryllium oxide) contribute more to CBD. We evaluated this in a beryllium worker cohort with
