: INTRODUZIONE: sebbene la relazione causale tra esposizione ad amianto e malattie neoplastiche sia ben nota, in molti Paesi il consumo del materiale è ancora rilevante e crescente. A causa della lunga latenza, nei Paesi dove è stato bandito (come in Italia) è oggi in corso un'epidemia di malattie correlate ad amianto. OBIETTIVI: descrivere i sistemi di sorveglianza dei mesoteliomi attivi nel mondo mediante un'analisi comparativa. METODI: è stata condotta una revisione bibliografica della letteratura disponibile sui sistemi di sorveglianza epidemiologica dei mesoteliomi attivi nel mondo, comparando metodi e risultati disponibili...

BACKGROUND: Malignant mesothelioma is a locally aggressive and highly lethal neoplasm of pleural, peritoneal and pericardial mesothelial cells without successful therapy. Previously, we reported that Quercetin in combination with Cisplatin inhibits cell proliferation and activates caspase-9 and -3 enzymes in different malignant mesothelioma cell lines. Moreover, Quercetin + Cisplatin lead to accumulation of both SPC111 and SPC212 cell lines in S phase. METHODS: In present work, 84 genes involved in cell growth and proliferation have analysed by using RT(2)-PCR array system and protein profile of mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) family proteins investigated by western blots...

Attraverso lo studio di 65 casi di probabile mesotelioma della pleura, in discussione in 4 procedimenti penali in corso in Regione Lombardia, deceduti tra il 2002 ed il 2015, il lavoro si propone l'obiettivo di fornire informazioni economiche sui consumi sanitari (ricoveri, prestazioni ambulatoriali, farmaci) erogati dal Servizio Sanitario Regionale (SSR) a tale tipologia di pazienti. Le informazioni sanitarie utilizzate sono quelle presenti negli archivi informatizzati di Regione Lombardia. Nel complesso ogni soggetto portatore di mesotelioma è costato al SSR, in media, circa 67...

La III conferenza di consenso sul Mesotelioma Maligno della Pleura (MM) si è riunita il 29 Gennaio 2015. Questo rapporto presenta le conclusioni della sezione 'Epidemiologia, Sanità Pubblica e Medicina del Lavoro'. L'incidenza di MM nel 2011 in Italia è stata 3.64 per 100,000 persone/anno tra gli uomini e 1.32 tra le donne. I trends di incidenza nella popolazione sembrano non crescere ulteriormente. Dieci casi su cento sono associati ad esposizione non lavorativa. L'incidenza tra le donne è molto elevata in Italia, a causa sia di esposizione lavorativa sia non lavorativa...

The goal of this study was to compare the possibilities and limitations of direct digital radiography of the chest (DDR), the use of ultrasound of the chest (US) and single slice computed tomography of the chest (CT) in diagnosing pleural mesothelioma. The study was conducted during the course of one year, on 80 patients who were successively referred to a specialized institution, under clinical suspicion of mesothelioma. The method of investigation was the comparison of findings, obtained by the reviewed methods of examination, with the pathohistologic results of a biopsy performed on each patient...

This article brings a brief review of asbestos exposure and asbestos-related diseases in Croatia in view of the asbestos ban. The first cases of asbestosis were diagnosed in workers from an asbestos-cement factory in 1961. Between 1990 and 2007, 403 cases of asbestosis had been registered as occupational disease: 300 with parenchymal fibrosis and the rest with parenchymal and pleural changes, or pleural plaques. As a rule, asbestos-related changes were diagnosed at an early stage thanks to regular checkups of the exposed workers...

COMPARATIVE STUDY

The study includes an analysis of the state of health of the inhabitants of the City of Trino, County of Vercelli, 15 km south-west of the capital town. With industries making a significant environmental impact and an old nuclear centre under dismantlement, in recent years, the City has often been mentioned in local newspapers and pressurised by residents and local associations. Hence the drawing up of this study to describe the state of health of residents and cancer pathologies (incidence and mortality rate) and, consequently, to evaluate the need for further epidemiological analysis...

BACKGROUND: Due to poor information collected through patient interviews, a considerable number of malignant mesothelioma (MM) cases still remain classified as "unknown" asbestos exposure in the Italian Mesotelioma Registry (Re.Na.M). At the same time, some occupational asbestos exposures, which were previously unknown, have been demonstrated in certain types of work, i.e., in agriculture and in the textile industry. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this research was to investigate the possible past occupational exposure to asbestos in clothing workers using sewing-machines...

Although it is difficult to document the exposition to asbestos in the agricultural workers, mesotelioma has however been noticed in the rural environment that may seem to have low risk because of its nature. This work describes the systematic diffusion of asbestos dust in the rural environment near Cremona due to the activity of "non-agricultural" workers who have fallen ill with mesothelioma. The patient described their work in details to the occupational medical doctor underlining the circumstances and the ways asbestos dust has been diffused in the rural environment...

Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) has been widely used in the treatment of arthritis and certain inflammatory diseases, and is also considered an alternative remedy for cancer even if not supported by concrete evidence. This report illustrates the first case of a fatal complication following the illicit use of this agent. A 55-y-old man who reportedly ingested 500 mg acetaminophen and approximately 1 ml DMSO solution was brought to the emergency department after experiencing 2 tonic-clonic seizures. He had been diagnosed with lung mesotelioma with brain metastases which caused no neurologic deficit...

We evaluated the frequency of micronuclei (MN) in peripheral blood lymphocytes of patients with pleural malignant mesotelioma (MM), lung cancer, benign respiratory diseases, and healthy controls. A significant increased frequency of MN was observed in patients with MM in comparison with all the other groups (median, 11.4 binucleated MN/1000 binucleated cells versus 5.1, 6.1, and 6.2, respectively). No association was found between MN and asbestos exposure. Recently, genetic susceptibility associated with asbestos exposure has been recognized in the development of MM...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence and major correlates of occupational exposure to asbestos among the 125 cases of mesothelioma of the pleura, peritoneum, and pericardium registered in the Romagna Region of Italy between 1986 and 1998. Adequate occupational information was obtained for 122 (98%) cases. Among these, the male:female ratio was 81:41 (2.0), the median age was 68 years (range, 25-92), and the pleural location accounted for 96 (79%) cases. According to job history, 61 (50%) cases had had definite (23), probable (12), and possible (26) occupational exposure to asbestos...

PURPOSE: To determine the value of pericardial biopsy as a complementary exam in the etiology of pericardial effusion. METHODS: We analyzed retrospectively (from 1990 to 1997) 38 patients with pericardial effusion. The age ranged between 3 months and 79 years (mean 41.15 +/- 21.78 years). Pericardial biopsy was performed in all cases through a subxiphoid incision. RESULTS: In 4 patients (10.5%) the biopsy was able to define etiology, 2 had tuberculosis and 2 neoplasias (1 undetermined adenocarcinoma, 1 mesotelioma)...
