New Study Shows Mesothelioma Risk is Higher in Workers Exposed to Man-Made Insulator, According to Surviving Mesothelioma
Date:7/25/2014

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

Researchers at the University of Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France have just released the results of a study indicating that a man-made material used in high-heat insulation may increase the risk of developing mesothelioma among workers exposed to asbestos. Surviving Mesothelioma has just posted an article on the new study. Click here to read it now.

The French scientists studied the work histories of 988 men who had developed mesothelioma between 1987 and 2006. One group of workers had been exposed to asbestos only while the other group had been exposed to both asbestos and a man-made high-temperature insulating material called RCF.

“A dose-response relationship [with mesothelioma] was observed in both groups but it was stronger in Group 2,” reports lead investigator Aude Lacourt of the University of Bordeaux.

The study published in the European Respiratory Journal found that in workers exposed to both asbestos and RCF, the risk of mesothelioma was four times higher than it was among people who had only been exposed to asbestos.

“Although we know that asbestos can cause mesothelioma, we still do not fully understand the other factors that may compound that risk,” says Surviving Mesothelioma Managing Editor Alex Strauss. “But understanding those factors such as RCF is the first step toward avoiding them.”
