Abstract: The South African gold mining industry recently joined the World Health Organisation Global Campaign to Eliminate Silicosis. Subsequently, a number of research projects are being focused on the evaluation of silica dust levels and dust allaying measures. The objectives of the project were to: Undertake a comprehensive literature survey to identify biomarkers for the early detection and / or prediction of silicosis, 2 Develop a systematic framework for the evaluation of studies on biomarkers, 3 Conduct a meta-analysis of data, if appropriate, 4 Hold a workshop of international experts, primarily to evaluate the potential for conducting a Phase II study and 5 Develop an outline of a proposal for a Phase II evaluation of any promising markers(s) identified
