Lung Clearance of Particles. Morphometric analysis of pulmonary clearance of Gr20, Gr5, Gr1, and CB over the 2 month time course assuming 100 % burden at 4 h post-exposure. At 2 months, a greater amount of Gr5 persisted in the lungs when compared to all other particles. The majority of the burden remaining in the lung at 2 months in mice exposed to Gr20 and CB was found to be located primarily in the alveoli (hatched area of bar); whereas Gr5 and Gr1 had greater remaining burden distributed in airways
