Nano-TiO₂ particles impair adhesion of airway epithelial cells to fibronectin.

Abstract

Titanium dioxide engineered nanoparticles (nano-TiO(2)) are widely used in the manufacturing of a number of products. Due to their size (<100 nm), when inhaled they may be deposited in the distal lung regions and damage Clara cells. We investigated the mechanisms by which short-term (1-h) incubation of human airway Clara-like (H441) cells to nano-TiO(2) (6… (More)
