Previous studies of surface modification of quartz particles have suggested that the biological activity of silica is at least in part related to its surface properties. In the present study, we exposed the tracheal lobe of 8 sheep to either 100 ml saline (saline group), 100 mg of quartz (Minusil-5) in 100 ml saline (SI group) or 100 mg of Al lactate treated quartz in 100 ml saline (SI-Al group). The 24 sheep were studied by bronchoalveolar lavage at days 0, 12, 24, 40, 60 and by autopsy at day… CONTINUE READING
