Association between neutrophil concentration in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and recent losses in diffusing capacity in men formerly exposed to asbestos

Chest

M R Cullen, W W Merrill

PMID: 1516387

Abstract

It has been observed widely that some individuals exposed to asbestos will experience continued losses of lung function after asbestos exposure ceases. Unfortunately, there are few data on factors that determine clinical course, limiting the clinician's ability to determine prognosis in...read more
