    • ...However, although metal concentrations in BAL supernatant may reflect lung load and/or environmental exposure to metals [4, 8, 9], relatively little is known about the reliability of this method for estimating environmental exposure and/or variations in element concentrations in pulmonary diseases of unknown or multi-factorial etiology, such as interstitial lung diseases...

    • ...In line with the results of previous studies of the chemical composition of BAL (e.g., [12, 17, 9, 4]), metal concentrations varied widely and some outlier values were also found (particularly for Cu and Mn; Fig. 1). This variability was not affected by sex, age, smoking habits, or potential occupational exposure...
