Abstract
Human exposure to engineered nanomaterials is likely to increase dramatically in the near future. However, studies on the effects of these novel materials on the immune system, which protects the body against foreign materials and pathogens, are few to date. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of carbon nanotubes on human Jurkat T cells, a model of T lymphocytes of the immune system and to compare them to crocidolite asbestos.
