Quantification of microsized fluorescent particles phagocytosis to a better knowledge of toxicity mechanisms.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The use of micro- or nanometric particles is in full expansion for the development of new technologies. These particles may exhibit variable toxicity levels depending on their physicochemical characteristics. We focused our attention on macrophages (MA), the main target cells of the respiratory system responsible for the phagocytosis of the… (More)
