Department of Environmental Health, College of Medicine, University of Cincinnati 1971 Aug; :1-79
Results are presented of a research program regarding the biological effects of trivalent chromium (7440473) and ferrochrome alloys. The following topics were investigated: solubility of trivalent chromium dust; interaction of chromium with human protein; transport of chromium by different types of tissues; subcellular distribution of chromium; exposure system for inhalation of chromium-oxide; pulmonary effects of chromium-oxide; pulmonary cell separation; and effect of suboptimal intake of chromium.
