Cullen R, Searl A, Miller B, Davis J, Jones A. Pulmonary and intraperitoneal inflammation induced by cellulose fibres. J Appl Toxicol. 2000;20:49-60 pubmed
..We conclude that the cellulose material studied is less inflammogenic than crocidolite and that the extent of the inflammatory response within the lung appears to reduce with continued exposure over a 14-day period. ..

..The explanation that the different responses are due to the different particle size distributions of the two dust types is examined in a companion paper (Tran et al., this issue). ..
