Abstract

The study has confirmed previous results of higher concentrations of asbestos fibres in cases than controls, and has shown that this is still found in subjects with little evidence of occupational and para-occupational exposure. The overlap in concentrations of retained asbestos for different groups of subjects did not suggest a clear cut of value.
