OBJECTIVE Rats exposed to high airborne mass concentrations of low-solubility low-toxicity particles (LSLTP) have been reported to develop lung disease such as fibrosis and lung cancer. These particles are regulated on a mass basis in occupational settings, but mass might not be the appropriate metric as animal studies have shown that nanoparticles (ultrafine particles) produce a stronger adverse effect than fine particles when delivered on an equal mass basis. METHODS This study investigated… CONTINUE READING
