Abstract:

In sclerogenic pneumoconioses with asbestosis the most unfavorable course was observed in the post-dust period. However, these data are based on a relatively small number of observations and over short periods. Furthermore, the role of individual factors which affect the dynamics of the process is unclear. In view of this, materials were developed for a dynamic observation carried out at the Medical and Sanitary Section MSS of the Uralasbest Combine from 1947 to 1969 on 390 individuals afflicted with uncomplicated asbestosis and 50 individuals afflicted with asbestotuberculosis. The initial diagnosis was confirmed at the Sverdlovsk Institute of Industrial Health and Occupational Diseases.
