Mechanisms of asbestos-induced carcinogenesis in hamster trachea.
Proceedings of the Twelfth Conference on Environmental Toxicology, Dayton, Ohio, November 3-5, 1981. Irvine, California, University of California, 1982 Apr; :13-23
In a recent survey of National Occupation Hazards, asbestos was ranked first on the list of carcinogens most hazardous to American industry. A linear dose-resonse relationship between the cumulative dosage of asbestos and the development of bronchogenic carcinoma has been reported in miners, millers, and facory workers. Moreover, the demonstration of asbestos fibers in the lungs and urine of the general population has raised public concern regarding the possible health effects of environmental exposure to asbestos.
