The journal of Current Research in Toxicology published in its Volume 2, 2021 issue a letter to the editor by Dr. Ann Wylie of the University of Maryland and Dr. Andrey Korchevskiy of C&IH titled, “Carcinogenicity of Fibrous Glaucophane: How Should We Fill the Data Gaps?” The letter discusses:
- Modeling approaches that should be applied to determine carcinogenic potential of various mineral types of elongate mineral particles;
- The case for nonasbestiform particles being much less toxic than asbestiform varieties; and
- Mesothelioma and lung cancer potency values for glaucophane, a naturally occurring amphibole mineral that was found in California and other regions.
