Biochemical parameters measured in BALF. Rats were exposed to 0.1, 0.3, 1.0, and 3.0 mg/m3 CeO2 nanoparticles and 50.0 mg/m3 BaSO4 nanoparticles. a total protein (TP), b lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and (c) ß-glucuronidase (GL) levels were determined at exposure day one and 28 as well as at post-exposure day one, 28 and 90. Values are expressed as mean ± SD, * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01 vs. clean air control, n ≥ 4; Kruskal-Wallis-ANOVA with Mann-Whitney U-Test as post-hoc analysis
