Particles and macrophages in murine Peyer's patches.


Mice were given 1% suspensions of 5 insoluble particles (chrysotile asbestos, quartz, carmine, carbon, and iron oxide) in drinking water for 3 months. The particles were subsequently sought in intestinal Peyer's patches by light microscopy. Carbon and iron oxide particles were visible in Peyer's patch macrophages, particularly in the subepithelial region… (More)
