Figure 6

Silica-induced changes in numbers of monocytes and pneumocytes in contact co-cultures (M+P) and non-contact co-cultures (M/P). The co-cultures were exposed to silica (80 and 160 μg/cm2) for 43 h. Data represent means ± SE for n = 3 separate experiments. *P < 0.05 shows statistical differences of monocytes and pneumocytes in co-cultures exposed to silica vs. un-exposed co-cultures of these cells. Data were log-transformed before performing ANOVA.
