Dissolution of silicic acid from amosite and quartz dusts under physiological conditions.

Abstract

The dissolution of silica from amosite dust in human serum and in Ringer buffer at 37 degrees C was found to be significantly higher than that from quartz. The significance of this finding in relation to their fibrogenic effects has been discussed.
