Summary data of lavage fluid contents 4 h following TiO 2 nanobelt instillations in the lungs of C57BL/6 mice. A) Mean ± SEM IL-1β release. B) Mean ± SEM relative fluorescence units (RFU) corresponding to active cathepsin B. Asterisks indicate significance at **P < 0.01, or *P < 0.05 compared to dispersion media vehicle (DM) and control particle TiO2 nanospheres (TNS).
