Figure 6

Dark field micrographs of alveolar macrophages recovered from BAL fluid prepared by cytospinning and H & E staining (A, C, E) and lung tissues with H & E staining (B, D, F). Micrographs from animals exposed to nanosilver and necropsied immediately post exposure (A, B) or 3 weeks post exposure (C, D) and sham-exposed mice (E, F). White arrows point to particle-laden macrophages in lung tissue.
