Effects of gallium on immune stimulation and apoptosis induction in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells.

Abstract

Gallium is commonly used in the semiconductor industry and medical field. Biologically, gallium is able to interrupt iron metabolism. Exposure to gallium has been shown to affect the human immune system. The purpose of this study was to investigate the in vitro biological effects of different gallium concentrations on cultured human peripheral blood… (More)
