The major goals of this project are to study the role of environmental factors in pulmonary alveolar proteinosis and extrinsic alveolitis. The population attributable fraction (PAF) estimates the amount of a disease that is due to a specific factor, quantifying the burden of disease that would be prevented if that factor was eliminated.
