Carbon load in airway macrophages as a biomarker of exposure to particulate air pollution; a longitudinal study of an international Panel
TLDR
It is demonstrated that carbon load in airway macrophages obtained by induced sputum reflects past long-term exposure to particulate air pollution. Expand
The Toxicological Geochemistry of Earth Materials: An Overview of Processes and the Interdisciplinary Methods Used to Understand Them
A broad spectrum of earth materials have been linked to, blamed for, and/or debated as sources for disease. In some cases, the links are clear. For example, excessive exposures to mineral dusts haveExpand
Extension of the ICRP Human Respiratory Tract Model : Implementation of Slow Bronchial Clearance Mechanisms
The dependence of slow bronchial clearance on particle size in the ICRP Human Respiratory Tract Model (HRTM) is presently considered by an empirical relationship between the slow clearance fractionExpand
Modelling particle retention in the alveolar-interstitial region of the human lungs.
TLDR
A simple physiologically based model developed to predict lung and lymph node particle retention in coal miners was found to represent lung retention in these studies adequately and was fitted to default parameter values for general use. Expand
Deposition and biokinetics of inhaled nanoparticles
TLDR
The presented approach ranges from inhaled particle deposition probability and retention in the respiratory tract to biokinetics and clearance of particles out of the respiratory tracts, and emphasizes the importance for quantitative analyses and the use of particle doses derived from real world exposures.

Nanotoxicology: An Emerging Discipline Evolving from Studies of Ultrafine Particles
TLDR
Results of older bio-kinetic studies with NSPs and newer epidemiologic and toxicologic studies with airborne ultrafine particles can be viewed as the basis for the expanding field of nanotoxicology, which can be defined as safety evaluation of engineered nanostructures and nanodevices. Expand
Canines as sentinel species for assessing chronic exposures to air pollutants: part 1. Respiratory pathology.
TLDR
Deep concern exists for the potential of an increasing rise in lung diseases in child populations exposed to Mexico City's environment. Expand

Ultrafine urban particle measurements in Budapest and their airway deposition distribution calculation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that large daily numbers of urban UFPs are deposited in the respiratory tract, which may play a key role in the health effects of particulate matter (PM) inhalation. Expand

Clearance of particles from small ciliated airways.
TLDR
The results strongly indicate that a considerable fraction of particles deposited in small ciliated airways had not cleared within 24 h, and that these particles cleared differently from particles deposit in the alveolar region, and the experimental data agree quite well with the IRTM predictions made using its default slow clearance fractions.

Human Bronchiolar Deposition and Retention of 6-, 8-, and 10-µm Particles
Three groups, each consisting of 6 healthy subjects, inhaled, respectively, 6-µm (aerodynamic diameter), 8-µm, and 10-µm Teflon particles, labeled with indium-1ll. The particles were inhaled at anExpand
Intratracheal instillation versus intratracheal-inhalation of tracer particles for measuring lung clearance function.
TLDR
The results suggest that intratracheal instillation of a low dose of tracer particles in the rat provides an adequate method for reliably determining effects of inhaled toxicants on alveolar particle clearance function. Expand

TLDR
It could be shown that the mucociliary clearance from the airways was particle size dependent and the clearance efficiency from theAirways increased with increasing particle size. Expand
Effect of size, concentration, surface area, and volume of polymethylmethacrylate particles on human macrophages in vitro.
This study investigated effects of different sizes, concentrations, volumes, and surface areas of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) particles on human macrophages. Adherent peripheral blood monocytesExpand
Long-term lung clearance of 195Au-labeled teflon particles in humans.
TLDR
Ten healthy males inhaled monodisperse Teflon particles labeled with 195Au, showing that a translocation within the thoracic region occurred, which might be explained by transportation of particles from the lung parenchyma to the regional lymph nodes. Expand
Tracheobronchial deposition and clearance in small airways in asthmatic subjects.
TLDR
The results show that it is possible to enhance tracheobronchial deposition both in healthy and asthmatic subjects, i.e. practically independent of airway dimensions, by inhaling rather large aerosol particles extremely slowly, which may be a useful therapeutic approach. Expand
Effect of flow rate on aerosol bolus penetration in a hollow canine lung airway cast.
TLDR
The results show that the penetration depth of an aerosol bolus increases with decreasing flow rate, especially for flow in transition from a flat profile to a parabolic profile. Expand
Human deposition and clearance of 6-micron particles inhaled with an extremely low flow rate.
TLDR
Investigating if tracheobronchial deposition of 6-microns particles could be increased, especially in the smaller bronchi, using an extremely slow inhalation rate implicates the possibility of developing a diagnostic model that can separate between bronchial reactivity in large and small bronchi.
