Abstract Background We assessed the cancer risks of four different Finnish asbestos-exposed cohorts.

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...
