The effects of asbestos inhalation on the distribution and enhancement of immunoassociated antigen expression of alveolar macrophage subpopulation.

Abstract

We have studied the effects of in vivo asbestos exposure on the surface immune-associated (Ia) antigen expression and distribution of alveolar macrophage subpopulations defined by continuous iso-osmotic Percoll gradients (density range: 1.006 to 1.123 g/ml) using a rat model of asbestos inhalation. Two groups of rats were exposed by intermittent inhalation… (More)
