Serum exposed to nanoparticle carbon black displays increased potential to induce macrophage migration

Journal Article
Barlow, P., Donaldson, K., MacCallum, J., Clouter, A., & Stone, V. (2005)
Serum exposed to nanoparticle carbon black displays increased potential to induce macrophage migration. Toxicology Letters, 155(3), 397-401. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.toxlet.2004.11.006
Objective: To assess whether fine and ultrafine particles (nanoparticles) have the capacity to activate factors in serum that would induce macrophage migration. This is a mode...

Zinc oxide nanoparticles and monocytes: Impact of size, charge and solubility on activation status

Journal Article
Prach, M., Stone, V., & Proudfoot, L. (2012)
Zinc oxide nanoparticles and monocytes: Impact of size, charge and solubility on activation status. Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology, 266(1), 19-26. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.taap.2012.10.020

Carbon black nanoparticles induce type II epithelial cells to release chemotaxins for alveolar macrophages.

Journal Article
Barlow, P. G., Clouter-Baker, A., Donaldson, K., MacCallum, J., & Stone, V. (2005)
Carbon black nanoparticles induce type II epithelial cells to release chemotaxins for alveolar macrophages. Particle and fibre toxicology, 2(1), 11-24. https://doi.org/10.1186/1743-8977-2-11
Background - Alveolar macrophages are a key cell in dealing with particles deposited in the lungs and in determining the subsequent response to that particle exposure. Nanopar...
