Asbestos fibers are potent elaborators of active oxygen species whether by reactions involving iron on the surface of the fiber, or by attempted phagocytosis of fibers by cell types resident in the lung. The link between production of active oxygen species and the pathogenesis of asbestos-mediated disease has been highlighted by studies outlined here(More)
Asbestos is an important occupational and environmental toxicant that affects several cell types in the respiratory tract. In an effort to understand how asbestos causes cell injury and/or altered proliferation and differentiation of cells, this laboratory has focused on reactive oxygen species as mediators of asbestos-induced biological effects.
