Figure 6

Volume of lung tumors 17 months after exposure to MWCNT. The figure demonstrates the volume of the lung occupied by tumor per individual mouse. The volume of the lung occupied by tumor was greater in the MCA + MWCNT (361 mm3+/-18.72) compared to the mice treated with MCA (202.61 mm3+/-36.75). The MWCNT group had an average tumor volume of 107.88 mm3+/- 28.70 compared to the negative control, Air group, with a volume of 22.29 mm3 +/- 3.93. *Indicates a significant difference compared to the respective air control group at p < .0001.
