Excerpt
Introduction: The development of techniques for assaying the mineral fiber content of tissues has provided researchers with the opportunity to correlate the occurrence of various fiber-related diseases with the cumulative fiber burdens in the target organ. Exposure to asbestos generally occurs through the inhalation of airborne fibers, and thus the respiratory tract is the site of most asbestosrelated diseases. Consequently, most studies of tissue fiber burdens have concentrated on the analysis of lung parenchyma. Asbestos is both fibrogenic and carcinogenic with respect to the respiratory system, with diseases occurring in the pleura (pleural plaques, diffuse pleural fibrosis, malignant mesothelioma) and in the lung (asbestosis, bronchogenic carcinoma). The pathologic features of these diseases have been reviewed in detail elsewhere (1-4) and will be discussed only insofar as they relate to lung fiber burdens.
