“Summary of Discussion Sessions: Workshop on Ingested Asbestos”

1983:108: Millette

Environmental Health Perspectives


At the Workshop on Ingested Asbestos, October 1982, the technical papers were divided into five topic areas: toxicology, epidemiology, gastrointestinal tract penetration, in vitro testing and engineering methods. Following the presentations in each topic area, a question and answer discussion period was held. A number of important issues were raised and statements clarified during this part of the program. Unfortunately all questions, answers, and comments could not be included in these Proceedings. This paper will attempt to summarize the points of general interest. I would personally like to thank all those at the Workshop who participated in making the discussion sessions constructive, worthwhile exchanges of ideas.
