Abstract
The cytotoxicity of various mineral forms of asbestos (1332214) is reviewed, beginning with the physical structure of asbestos fibers and the changes occurring in them after entering the body. The interactions of asbestos fibers with erythrocytes, fibroblasts, macrophages and epithelial cells are described. The authors conclude that the physical and chemical alterations of asbestos after contact with living tissue should be considered when designing in vitro experiments.
