  1. Epidemiological evaluation of release of monocyte TNF-alpha as an exposure and effect marker in pneumonoconiosis [pneumoconiosis] : a five year follow up study of coal workers.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives-To determine (a) reproducibility with previous cross sectional findings, and (b) the predictive value of initial release of tumour necrosis factor-a (TNF-a) towards later progression of coalworkers'pneumoconiosis (CWP).

    Method-Release of monocyte TNF-a after in vitro stimulation with coal mine dust, silica, and endotoxin was measured in 104 retired miners and was related to stage of CWP (chest radiograph) and cumulative exposure.

    A subgroup of 46 miners was screened by high resolution computed tomography (HRCT).

    Prospective analysis of TNF-a (40 out of 104 miners involved in the previous TNF-a study) was done by relating initial TNF-a to five year progression of CWP measured by comparison of paired chest radiographs.

    Results

    As observed previously, dust stimulated release of TNF-a was increased in miners, especially in the early stages of pneumoconiosis.

    Cumulative exposure was related to pneumoconiotic stage but not to release of TNF-a.

    This excluded TNF-a as an exposure marker.

    Initial concentrations (1987) of TNF-a were related to later progression of CWP.

    Miners who showed abnormally high dust stimulated release of TNF-a had an increased risk of progression in CWP.

    Conclusions-These results show (a) the significant involvement of TNF-a in pneumoconiosis in humans induced by coal dust and (b) that this routine test possibly constitutes a powerful tool to estimate individual prognosis of pneumoconiotic disease, even after the end of occupational exposure.
