Abstract

The analysis of 335 cases of mesothelioma observed at the Ramazzini Foundation and the Bologna Institute of Oncology has shown: 1) a high percentage of correlation of these tumours with asbestos exposure; 2) a large number of population categories potentially exposed to asbestos fibres and therefore at risk of developing mesothelioma; and 3) the high risk of mesothelioma among people exposed in various circumstances to asbestos used in railroads and sugar refinery plants.
