Biological effects of diesel exhaust particles (DEP) on tissues and cells isolated from respiratory tracts of guinea pigs.


Diesel engine-powered vehicles emit some 30 to 100 times more particles than do gasoline engine cars. We previously reported that diesel exhaust particles (DEP) instilled intratracheally into mouse caused lung edema accompanying endothelial cell damage. In order to clarify further the biological effects of DEP on the respiratory system, the primary target… (More)
