BACKGROUND Increased ambient levels of particulate matter <10 microm (PM(10)) from fossil fuel combustion are associated with an increased prevalence of respiratory symptoms in children. However, it is unknown whether, and to what extent, pollutant particles penetrate the paediatric lower airway. The capacity of alveolar macrophages (AM) to phagocytose inhaled material was used to directly assess exposure of normal children to particles. METHODS AM from 22 children aged 3 months to 16 years… CONTINUE READING
