Early cellular and biochemical alveolar responses following intra-tracheal inoculation with low dose of asbestos and quartz.

Abstract

The study of broncho-alveolar lavage harvested from rats intratracheally dusted with chrysotile (0.5 mg), leached chrysotile (0.5 mg), crocidolite (0.5 mg) and quartz (0.5 and 5 mg) indicated: 1. A cytotoxic lysis of alveolar macrophages in relation to phagocytosis of dust particles in the following decreasing order: quartz, crocidolite, chrysotile. 2… (More)
