  1. (a) p(t) are estimated male age-specific incidence rates of pleural mesothelioma per 100 000 person-years in France in 2005 [25].
  2. (b) π(t) are estimated male age-conditional probabilities of developing pleural mesothelioma within residual lifetime after age t, calculated as π t = 1 l t 1 p l .
