development of malignant mesothelioma of the pleura was reported by Wagner et al. (1960) in South Africa. The results of several epidemiological studies of mesothelioma (First International Conference on the Biological Effects of Asbestos, 1965) confirmed the association between mesothelioma and previous exposure to asbestos dust.

Background The risk of malignant mesothelioma (MM) increases proportionally to the cumulative exposure, and to the 3rd or 4th power of time since first exposed, to asbestos. However, little is known about the risk of MM after more than 40 years since first exposure because most epidemiological studies do not have followup for sufficient periods of time.
Mesothelioma was rare until the second half of the twentieth century 47. In 1960, C. Wagner reported a mesothelioma epidemic among crocidolite asbestos miners in South Africa 48. After the report ...
In this paper we examine the effectiveness of merger control decisions in South Africa in achieving the economic goals of merger control by using event study techniques to assess the impact of mergers and acquisitions on listed firms' stock market value in South Africa.
In a Mexican mesothelioma casecontrol study, AguilarMadrid et al. , used hygienists' expert assessments to retrospectively estimate exposure. These studies were limited to selected sectors of the population and unable to provide a gross estimate of asbestos exposure in LA countries.

This comprehensive metaanalysis was conducted to answer the question as to which procedure, pleurectomy decortication (P/D) or extrapleural pneumonectomy (EPP) is more beneficial to malignant pleural mesothelioma patients' outcome.
For example, 25% of mesothelioma cases in a Spanish case–control study had no significant occupational, domestic, or neighborhood exposure to asbestos . It is plausible that exposure to NOA may account for a portion of those mesothelioma cases.

A significantly increased risk of developing mesothelioma occurred among residents in the area which extends 2 200 m south southeast and 900 m north northwest from the center of the plant. This is in accordance with the predominant wind direction in the area, which blows from the north northwest.

Dec 05, 2012· Its authors, a trio of UK pathologists, noticed something odd in South Africa: more than 30 cases of mesothelioma, all of them clustered in the Asbestos Hills outside of Cape Province. Using the casecontrol method – in which scientists survey people with a rare disease and look for shared risk factors – the group boiled the cause down to one variable: asbestos exposure.
We recently reported that countries with a high cumulative number of mesothelioma deaths also had high cumulative asbestos use. 6 South Africa was previously a major producer of asbestos and was the site of the first mesothelioma cluster described. 31 Mesothelioma mortality varied considerably between regions. For example, the ageadjusted mortality rate was 6fold higher in Oceania than in Asia, 16fold higher .
This capacity of asbestos to cause mesothelioma at low levels of exposure was confirmed in a casecontrol study of mesothelioma deaths using the pathology records of the London Hospital. A greater proportion of cases than controls had been employed in the local asbestos factory, had worked with asbestos or had lived in the same house as an asbestos worker.
In a multicentered case–control study of 123 mesothelioma patients in South Africa , no case with a history of chrysotile mining was identiﬁed, and there was no case involving exclusively environmental exposure to chrysotile. Other case–control studies have been reviewed . A metaanalysis ofmesothelioma[25,26]wasconductedfor
