Abstract

The techniques of intratracheal instillation and bronchopulmonary lavage have proved useful for investigating the cytotoxicities of mineral dusts in vivo. Adamis and Krass (1991) found that the relative cytotoxicities of the different types of ceramic respirable dusts can be determined by this method.
