  • Presented here is information on the mechanisms of action of different dusts and fibres of industrial interest. Emphasis is placed on the use of cell and organ culture, and lavage cell populations obtained from man and laboratory animals, in order to elucidate cellular and molecular events occurring after their interaction with fibrous and non-fibrous particulates, including metal compounds. In four sections, the volume provides research findings in the following areas: cellular and metabolic… CONTINUE READING
