• silicosis and coal
  • The pathogenesis of silicosis and coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP) were reviewed from a cellular prospective. (cdc.gov)
  • Evidence supporting proposed mechanisms for the development and progression of silicosis and coal workers' pneumoconiosis was presented including the results of in-vitro stimulation of toxic products from alveolar macrophages, in-vitro stimulation of inflammatory mediators from alveolar macrophages, in-vitro stimulation of fibrogenic factors from alveolar macrophages, in-vivo exposure of animals to coal dust, and in-vivo exposure of animals to silica (14808607).

  • coal miners
  • This was amply demonstrated by the rapid development of pneumoconiosis among Scottish coal miners who had been engaged in cutting through a fault composed of sandstone rock. (cdc.gov)
  • It is, therefore, critically important that the role of silica not be discounted when evaluating pneumoconiosis risk among coal miners. (cdc.gov)
  • Their efforts led to passage of the Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969, which created a black lung compensation program for coal miners, and its amendment in 1972, that extended benefits to all miners with fifteen or more years of service who suffered respiratory impairment, whether pneumonoconiosis was pathologically verifiable or not.

  • The original objective of the "B" reader examination was to identify physicians who were qualified to serve in national pneumoconiosis programs, particularly regarding epidemiological research and compensation of coal miners. (wikipedia.org)
  • workers
  • A home study syllabus was presented which was designed as an aid to physicians taking a teaching seminar related to a program of chest radiography for identifying cases of pneumoconiosis in coal workers. (cdc.gov)

  • Currently, "B" readers are involved with epidemiological evaluation, surveillance, and worker monitoring programs involving many types of pneumoconioses, not just the Coal Workers' programs. (wikipedia.org)
