Figure 5

The concentrations of selected inorganic components in the collected samples presented together with the PM-induced IL-6 from alveolar rat macrophages after exposure to 20 μg/ml of coarse (C) and fine (F) fractions collected in Oslo, Rome, Lodz and Amsterdam in spring (upper), summer (middle) and winter (lower) seasons. IL-6 is shown on the left ordinate, values are mean ± SEM (n = 3). The concentration of inorganics is shown on the right ordinate (μg/mg PM).
