The adjuvant effect of particles on allergic immune responses has been shown to increase with decreasing particle size and increasing particle surface area. Like ultrafine particles, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have nano-sized dimensions and a large relative surface area and might thus increase allergic responses. Therefore, we examined whether single-walled (sw) and multi-walled (mw) CNTs have the capacity to promote allergic responses in mice, first in an sc injection model and thereafter in an… CONTINUE READING
