Certain particulate air pollutants may play an important role in the increasing prevalence of respiratory allergy by stimulating T helper 2 cell (Th2)-mediated immune responses to common antigens. The study described here examined different particles, diesel exhaust particles (DEP), carbon black particles (CBP), and silica particles (SIP) for their immunomodulating capacity in both primary and secondary immune responses in female BALB/C mice. The primary response was studied after subcutaneous… CONTINUE READING
