Section 1 Experimental pathology studies with rats, including lung dose determination studies. These studies on the pathological responses of rats to following inhalation of fibres or particles and were aimed at determining the types of pathological response and the important characteristics of fibres and particles that dictate their : Kenneth Donaldson. Some invertebrates have lung-like structures that serve a similar respiratory purpose as, but are not evolutionarily related to, vertebrate lungs. Some arachnids, such as spiders and scorpions, have structures called book lungs used for atmospheric gas exchange. Some species of spider have four pairs of book lungs but most have two : D

Biopersistence and Durability of Nine Mineral Fibre Types in Rat Lungs over 12 Months The link between biopersistence of inhaled fibres and risk of pathological response in the lung is widely accepted (Davis, ), although reliable some fibre types from lung tissue (Davis, ; Eastes and Hadley, ; Searl, ), and therefore. 1. adenocarcinoma (~40% of cases) originates in peripheral lung areas- bronchial glands, alveolar cells 2. squamous cell carcinoma (% of cases) in bronchial epithelium 3. small cell carcinoma (~20% of cases) contains lymphocyte-like cells that originate in primary bronchi and subsequently metastasize.

Pay Attention to Books' Deadly Dust. Relationship of Lung Cancer and Heart Attack to Library Books' Dust. By Hassan Bolourchi, Ph.D. [email protected] This article is presented at: The 6th edition of the Indoor Air Quality Meeting (IAQ) in Padova, Italy. 10 to 12 November   The durability of fibres deposited in the lung is dependent upon the lung’s ability to clear the fibres, as well as the fibres’ physical and chemical properties. The durability of man-made fibres can be altered in the production process, according to end-use requirements, through the addition of certain stabilizers such as Al 2 O 3.

Sized glass fibres were administered to rats by intratracheal instillation to study the effect of fibre length and diameter on clearance and also on the solubility of fibres in the lung.

Deposition, clearance, retention, and durability of inhaled particles in lung are important factors for induction of pulmonary fibrosis or lung cancer.

To study the deposition and clearance of aluminium silicate ceramic fibers from the lung, male Wistar rats were exposed to ceramic fibers, with a mass median aerodynamic diameter (MMAD) of Cited by: 4.

The distribution of inhaled mineral fibers in the lung determines the site and severity of disease caused by the fibers. Some of our recent work has described the fate of inhaled asbestos fibers in rodents.

After a brief inhalation exposure, asbestos fibers are deposited primarily at the first alveolar duct bifurcations, and fibrotic lesions Cited by: Influence of characteristics of inhaled fibres on development of tumours in the rat lung.

Sized glass fibres were administered to rats by intratracheal instillation to study the effect of fibre length and diameter on clearance and also on the solubility of fibres in the lung. The samples included 5, 10, 30 and 60 × μm and 10 and 60 × 3 μm by: lung more easily than others and some are more readily removed than others.

In this study the lungs of baboons which had been exposed to different types of fibre were examined and the build up of fibres in the lung after different periods of exposure plotted.

Similarly the clearance of fibres from the lung after exposure was determined. Schematic diagram of the exposure system.

It illustrates the movement of fibers within the respiratory tract, specific responses to mediators and several recognized biological responses to fibers, in particular asbestos fibers, i.e.,bronchial carcinoma, pleural mesothelioma and lung fibrosis.

The present study was designed to determine whether pleural fiber burdens or subchronic pleural fibroproliferative and inflammatory changes can help explain the marked interspecies differences in pleural fibrosis and mesothelioma that are observed following long-term inhalation of RCF-1 ceramic fibers by rats and by:   Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) constitute one of the most promising types of nanomaterials in industry today.

With their increasing use, the potential toxicity and carcinogenicity of MWCNT needs to be evaluated in bioassay studies using rodents.

The exact role of primary nanoparticle (NP) size and their degree of agglomeration in aerosols on the determination of pulmonary effects is still poorly understood. Smaller NP are thought to have greater biological reactivity, but their level of agglomeration in an aerosol may also have an impact on pulmonary response.
