01/01/2009 - "The radiographic gold-standard for diagnosis of asbestosis has been the plain chest radiograph, and in many asbestosis-screening clinics, chest radiograph abnormalities in conjunction with a history of asbestos exposure have been the mainstay of diagnosis. "
01/01/2011 - "First, the narrow definition of asbestosis forged by medical experts in interwar Britain helped shape a public perception of the asbestos issue as finite and controllable. "
07/01/1985 - "Bronchoalveolar lavage and clearance of 99m-Tc-DTPA in asbestos workers without evidence of asbestosis."
03/01/2003 - "Radiographic (ILO) readings predict arterial oxygen desaturation during exercise in subjects with asbestosis."

"
01/01/1989 - "The asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening groups showed significant oxygen desaturation on exertion, confirming that both these conditions give rise to appreciable respiratory disability."
05/01/1994 - "In fact, among study subjects without asbestosis, significant decreases in gas exchange (higher VD/VT and increased alveolar-arterial oxygen pressure difference) were observed at maximal exercise among subjects with pleural fibrosis. "
09/01/1988 - "The impairment of lung function in the two disorders has been compared in more detail in 29 patients with asbestosis and 25 with fibrosing alveolitis, arterial oxygen desaturation during exercise being used to define the severity of the disorders. "

"
03/01/2011 - "We identified two Kinesin proteins that can be potentially used as blood biomarkers to identify asbestosis patients at risk of developing lung cancer."

08/01/1981 - "However, in view of the reports of abnormal gallium accumulation, and occasional elevation of SACE activity in silicosis, asbestosis and miliary tuberculosis, it is still necessary to require histological evidence of noncaseating granuloma to confirm the diagnosis of sarcoidosis."
01/01/1985 - "To analyze the clinical features of asbestos-induced alveolitis and stage its activity, we evaluated 217 asbestos workers by the usual clinical, radiological, and functional parameters and computerized gallium 67(Ga) lung scan; we obtained bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) in 33 and lung biopsy in 6. In addition, we scored the profusion of lung rales and correlated it with other parameters of severity of asbestosis. "
12/31/1991 - "Improved imaging techniques may assist in the diagnosis of early asbestosis, such as could occur from "asbestos in place." These include (1) increased visualization of visceral pleural thickening, (2) high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT), and (3) gallium scanning, combined with evidence of serum markers indicating inflammation-associated pulmonary collagen formation. "
|6.||Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies (ANCA)IBA
06/01/2004 - "As the interstitial pneumonia improved after this treatment, the correct diagnosis may have been, not asbestosis, but MPO-ANCA-related interstitial pneumonia."

10/01/2003 - "The influence of asbestos appears stronger than that of silica because ANCA positivity was found among subjects who had histories of exposure to asbestos but who did not exhibit typical radiographic signs of asbestosis on their chest x-rays. "
06/01/1989 - "Cell-free BAL supernatants from asbestos-exposed patients with or without asbestosis also contained significantly greater amounts of LTB4 than did those from control subjects, indicating enhanced in vivo production of this inflammatory mediator.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)"

11/01/1985 - "The t1/2LB was significantly shorter in both smokers and nonsmokers with asbestosis, compared with 31 normal nonsmoking controls, but there were no relationships between t1/2LB and BAL:serum albumin ratio or any other BAL protein levels in either smokers or nonsmokers with asbestosis."
