Mesothelioma: Identical Routes to Malignancy from Asbestos and Carbon Nanotubes

Mesothelioma: Identical Routes to Malignancy from Asbestos and Carbon Nanotubes
Daniel J. Murphy, Jennifer Port

Summary

Exposure of laboratory mice to carbon nanotubes mimics exposure to asbestos, from initial and chronic inflammation, through loss of the same tumour-suppressor pathways and eventual sporadic development of malignant mesothelioma. Fibres of a similar nature may pose significant health risks to humans.
