Reduction of micronucleus formation in exposed V79-cells after addition of the iron chelators 2,2'-dipyridyl (final concentration: 100 μM) (A) and desferal (final concentration: 100 μM) (B). The treatment of cells with 2,2'-DPD and desferal, respectively, was done simultaneously with the fiber and particle treatment (concentrations: 3 μg/cm2 CaSO4; 3 μg/cm2 asbestos cement; 1 μg/cm2 chrysotile; exposure time: 48 h).
