Abstract

This paper describes the methods and results of the Emilia-Romagna Malignant Mesothelioma Registry. The Registry has been active since 1996 and collects all cito-histologically confirmed cases of malignant mesothelioma occurring in the residents of the Emilia-Romagna Region. Information is acquired from 20 reference points in the Institutes of Pathology and 20 reference points in the local units of Department of Public Health. Additional information about asbestos exposure is collected by questionnaire from all over the Region. In the period 1996-2000, 286 new cases of malignant mesothelioma (256 pleural, 25 peritoneal, 3 pericardic and 2 testicular) have been observed (199 males and 87 females); 95% of cases were confirmed cyto-histologically (85% histologically and 77% immunohistochemically). In 50% of cases information about work and lifestyle was directly obtained from patients. Further cases have been collected by linkage with the files of the Mortality Registry and hospital admission and discharge sheets in 1996: 7% of additional cases were found. The incidence was higher among men, in older age and in asbestos-exposed people; in 30% of cases asbestos exposure was not identified. The annual incidence rate in Emilia-Romagna (for 105 person-years, age standardised on the 1991 Italian population), has been 1.93 in males and 0.87 in females. The higher rates of incidence were detected in the Provinces of Piacenza, Parma and Reggio Emilia.
