Association Between Mesothelioma and Non-Occupational Asbestos Exposure: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Led by a team including Rengyi Xu, Frances Barg, Edward Emmett, PISC Director Douglas J. Wiebe, and Wei-Ting Hwang, this study evaluates the existing literature on the correlation between mesothelioma and asbestos fibers.
