Adverse health effects have been associated with the inhalation of a variety of atmospheric particles. The potential toxicity of a recently collected urban air particulate sample (EHC-93, mean diameter < 1 microm) was assessed after instilling 1 mg to mouse lung. A soluble fraction (15% of total) and an insoluble fraction of the original dust were also instilled at 1 and 0.15 mg doses and the lung reaction was followed for up to 8 weeks. The complete dust sample induced an inflammatory response… CONTINUE READING
