Particle Deposition Following Aspiration. Hematoxylin and eosin-stained lung tissue sections 4 h after mice were exposed to 40 μg of Gr20, Gr5, Gr1, or CB showing differential deposition of particles (Blue arrow heads = particle uptake in macrophages; green arrows = particles in airspace; 60x magnification). All particles were found in both airways and alveoli with majority of all particles located in alveoli (greater than 80 % for all groups), with slight variations in airway deposition depending upon particle size
