Objective and design Among combustion-derived air pollutants, little is known about jet kerosene characteristics and effects. Materials and methods Particles yielded by experimental kerosene combustion in a jet engine were characterized with electron microscopy and X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy. Immature human monocyte-derived dendritic cells were exposed for 18 h to 10, 25 or 100 lg/mL jet exhaust particles and/or Escherichia coli-derived endotoxin. Antigen-presenting and costimulation… CONTINUE READING
