6. Duncan KE, et al. (2010). In summary, we report here that water-elutriated, small size fractions of Libby amphibole and amosite (LA2.5 and AM2.5, respectively), which presumably penetrate deeper into the lung, are at least as potent in stimulating epithelial cell production of proinflammatory cytokines as unfractionated LA and AM. Furthermore, AM2.5 induced a 4- to 10-fold greater proinflammatory response compared with LA2.5. tobacco Asbestos, Amosite | Asbestos, Amphibole Study subjects United States Asbestos, Amosite | Asbestos, Amphibole Details inflammatory response | regulation of gene expression
7. Hiraku Y, et al. (2014).

18. Mastrangelo G, et al. (2011). Osteopontin increased with increasing age and several aspects of asbestos exposure, without differences related to the presence of pleural plaques; the explanatory variables with a significant independent influence on OPN were length of exposure (positive correlation) and time elapsed since last exposure (positive correlation); however, since asbestos in lung tissue tends to wane over time, OPN should decrease (rather than increase) with time since last exposure, and, therefore, OPN cannot be a reliable biomarker of either exposure or the presence of pleural plaques. age Asbestos Workers Italy plasma SPP1 Details
19. Leivo-Korpela S, et al. (2012). The adipokine adipsin was associated with the degree of parenchymal fibrosis, impairment of pulmonary diffusing capacity, and with inflammatory activity in asbestos-exposed subjects, suggesting that adipsin may have a role in the pathogenesis or as a biomarker in asbestos-induced lung disease.

20. Filiberti R, et al. (2013). Multivariate analysis revealed significant predictors of increased soluble mesothelin-related peptide (including age greater than 57 years, current smoking, a positive anamnesis for cancer and for asbestos-related pleural lesions, and BMI less than 25); the degree of these associations is low, nevertheless they should be accounted for in the interpretation of mesothelin as a candidate marker predictive of mesothelioma. age | body mass index | disease | tobacco Asbestos Controls for disease:Neoplasms | Subjects with disease:Neoplasms | Subjects with disease:Pleural Diseases | Workers Italy serum MSLN Details
21. Andujar P, et al. (2013). These results emphasise distinct genetic alterations between asbestos-related thoracic tumours, but identify common potential susceptibility factors (i.e. single nucleotide polymorphisms in intron 7 of TP53); while genetic changes in non-small cell lung cancer are dominated by the effects of tobacco smoke, the increase of transversions in TP53 gene is consistent with a synergistic effect of asbestos.

22. Kukkonen MK, et al. (2014). Our results support the hypothesis that the inflammasome is important in the development of fibrotic lung disease by associating the NLRP3 rs35829419 variant allele with increased risk of asbestos-related interstitial lung fibrosis, and the TGFB1 rs2241718 variant allele with decreased risk of asbestos-related visceral pleural fibrosis; polymorphisms in CARD8 and TIMP2 are proposed to modify the development and/or calcification of pleural thickenings. genetics Asbestos Subjects with gene influence:CARD8 | Subjects with gene influence:NLRP3 | Subjects with gene influence:TGFB1 | Subjects with gene influence:TIMP2 | Workers Finland Details Asbestosis | Calcinosis | Fibrosis | Occupational Diseases | Pleural Diseases
