||The aim of this study was firstly to assess the relative toxicities of a panel of nine low-toxicity respirable dusts in in-vitro and in-vivo assays in rats. Lung instillation and inhalation tests provoked inflammatory response and particulate accumulation in the lungs. Data show differences in pulmonary responses to inhalation of the dusts and in the distribution of macrophage. In a second part, two dusts (titanium dioxide and barium sulfate) were used to evaluate the dose-response relationship between lung burden and specific biologically adverse effects (retardation of alveolar clearance and pulmonary inflammation), to validate a predictive mathematical model and to estimate the NOAEL level.
