Authors:  Massimo Menegozzo, Roberto Pasetto, Simona Menegozzo and Pietro Comba
Abstract:
Mesothelioma is a rare but lethal disease. This chapter provides an explanation of the
disease and descriptive epidemiological data: incidence, mortality, survival, temporal
trends and geographical distribution. It also presents etiological data on asbestos and
asbestos-type fibers and delves into the effects of the duration and intensity of exposure
and the dose-response relation. It describes the contexts of occupational risk in general
terms, details on exposure and the risks associated with specific work sectors. The report
then goes on to illustrate multiple scenarios of environmental exposure. Finally, it
elaborates on the contribution of the epidemiology of mesothelioma to Public Health
initiatives: environmental reclamation, identification of groups at risk and the prevention
of asbestos related pathologies in developing countries.
