Science of the Health Effects of Fibers
These are animations of some of the important processes underlying the
biological effects of fibers.
- Macrophage action.
Moving schematic diagrams of the action of a macrophage encountering an
ordinary particle, a short fiber, or a long fiber.
- Dissolving fibers.
Time lapse photomicrographs of fibers dissolving in simulated lung fluid.
- Predictive model.
Moving graphs verifying the model for disease following exposure to
long fibers of different biodurability in chronic rat studies.
