A comparison of acute and long-term effects of industrial multiwalled carbon nanotubes on human lung and immune cells in vitro.

Abstract

The close resemblance of carbon nanotubes to asbestos fibers regarding their high aspect ratio, biopersistence and reactivity increases public concerns on the widespread use of these materials. The purpose of this study was not only to address the acute adverse effects of industrially produced multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on human lung and immune… (More)
