- Experimental results obtained by examining the effects of
exposing various immune cells to silica particles have indicated
that silica-exposed patients possess altered immune functions
and are prone to lung fibrosis and autoimmune disorders.

- Many stonemasons use a range of powered hand-tools during the working day. Most masons using powered hand-tools are at risk of developing HAVS.
Generally speaking, masons, who use rotary power tools such as grinders (cutting or polishing), are likely to reach daily exposure action value well within an hour.
Masons, who use traditional stone hammers are likely to reach exposure action value in 5 minutes of actually using the tools (trigger times) and reach the exposure limit value well within half an hour. This puts them at very high risk from vibration.

- Despite active research, the highly lethal disorders caused by silica inhalation continue to pose major clinical challenges because there are refractory to current therapeutic strategies.
In addition, clinical detection of silica-associated lung diseases is currently dependent on radiological and lung function tests, which are both late manifestations of diseases
Hence, it is becoming vital to understand how complex pathologies (fibrosis, cancer, and autoimmune disorders) are induced by inhaled particles in order to reduce their impacts on human health.

- There is an established link between silica exposure and the development of systemic vasculitis. There is no clear quantification of the risk of exposure, or how to protect workers against it.
While there is documented evidence that links silica exposure to renal disease, it is not a recognized industrial disease and no compensation is available. We have written to the UK Industrial Advisory Board regarding the likely renal effects of silica exposure.

- These many-headed hydras aren't just a trick of mad science. For the first time, researchers have figured out what keeps hydra head regeneration in check. The findings could inform everything from human developmental studies to cancer research.

- Because ambient fine particulate matter may be introduced into the human respiratory system and reach the lung alveoli, they have the potential for bioaccumulation in tissues/organs and oxidative damage on the respiratory system.
Teachers spend approximately 6-8 h each teaching day, and for children, at least one-third of their day is spent in the classroom. Thus, it is not surprising that fine chalk dust in the classroom can exert some adverse effects on the human respiratory system.

- DID Francisco de Goya develop a rare immune disorder before producing some of the darkest work of his career?
Often called the father of modern art, Goya fell ill with “colic” in 1792, aged 46. A year later, a mystery illness left him bed-ridden. It took him two years to recover, and he was deaf for the rest of his life.

- Glomerulonephritis, the commonest cause of end-stage renal failure in most countries, is worsened and may even be caused by exposure to chemicals present on many work places, at home and in the public environment.
The commonest nephrotoxic chemicals are hydrocarbons, present for instance in organic solvents, glues, fuels, paints and motor exhausts. Exposure is common among painters, printers, cabinet makers, fitters and mechanics, electricians, in much manufacturing, and in many other occupations
Also nephrotoxic are silicates, the main components in rocks and sand. Exposure is prevalent among miners, foundry and quarry workers, sandblasters, glaziers, and workers in the production and handling of asbestos, mineral wool and fiber glass.
Other chemicals that may promote glomerulonephritis or other kidney diseases include gold, lead, mercury and various drugs, for instance non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs and lithium

- Approximately 80% to 90% of patients with pauci-immune necrotizing and crescentic glomerulonephritis will have a circulating ANCA.
By indirect fluorescence microscopy on alcohol-fixed neutrophils, ANCA yields two patterns of staining: perinuclear (P-ANCA) and cytoplasmic (C-ANCA).
The two major antigen specificities for ANCA are MPO and PR3. With rare exceptions, anti-MPO antibodies produce a P-ANCA pattern of staining on indirect immunofluorescence microscopy, whereas anti-PR3 antibodies cause a C-ANCA pattern of staining.
