Phagocytizing cells recruitment and activity in response to pulmonary deposition of magnetite particles of different size in nanometer and micrometer ranges

, , , , , , , , , , ,
It is often maintained that nanoparticles are poorly recognized by host’s defence mechanisms and, specifically, cause weak attraction of phagocytes and are therefore removed from lungs ineffectively. However, intratracheal instillation of water-suspended magnetite nanoparticles caused [...]
