Role of genetics x exposure in environmental lung disease
Granulomatous disorders and immunologic mechanistic basis: berylliosis and sarcoidosis
Immunogenetics that may apply generally to granulomatous disorders
Berylliosis: genetic epidemiology studies, functional genomics and gene x environment interaction studies
Role of exposure vs. genetic basis
Sarcoidosis: genetic epidemiology studies, attempts at functional genomics and directions for research to use clinical phenotype and genotype information to improve and help direct the search for an unknown causative agent
Possible implications for other (non-granulomatous) environmental lung disorders
