We want to thank the Collegium Ramazzini for their (unsigned) comments on the 2014 update of the Helsinki criteria (1). The original Helsinki criteria (criteria) were published in 1997 (2). The Helsinki criteria updates of 2014 consisted of preparatory work in the form of reviews by four work groups on pre-selected topics (subject areas). This was thus not a systematic re-evaluation of the entire criteria and major portions of the 1997 criteria are unaffected by the updates. Based on the reviews...

Results: The compensated a...

According to the most recent World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, more than 107 000 people die each year from asbestos-related lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis resulting from exposure at work (1). The asbestos epidemic is...
