- Winter urban air particles from Rome (Italy): effects on the monocytic-macrophagic RAW 264.7 cell lineRoberta Pozzi
Dipartimento di Tecnologie e Salute, Istituto Superiore di Sanita, Viale Regina Elena 299, 00161 Rome, Italy
Environ Res 99:344-54. 2005..We suggest that the higher concentration of organic compounds on fine carbonaceous particles may partially explain the higher activation of RAW 264.7 cells by fine particles...
- Inflammatory mediators induced by coarse (PM2.5-10) and fine (PM2.5) urban air particles in RAW 264.7 cellsRoberta Pozzi
Laboratory of Environmental Hygiene, Istituto Superiore di Sanita, Viale Regina Elena 299, 00161 Rome, Italy
Toxicology 183:243-54. 2003..5 and by PM2.5-10 but not by carbon black. Carbon black was consistently less effective than the urban particles, suggesting that, the contaminants adsorbed on the particles are responsible for the release of inflammatory mediators...
- Exposure to ZnO nanoparticles induces oxidative stress and cytotoxicity in human colon carcinoma cellsBarbara De Berardis
Department of Technology and Health, Italian National Institute of Health, Viale Regina Elena 299, 00161 Rome, Italy
Toxicol Appl Pharmacol 246:116-27. 2010..Moreover, the study of the relationship between toxicological effects and physico-chemical characteristics of particles suggests that surface area does not play a primary role in the cytotoxicity. ..
