Faserige Stäube - tierexperimentelle Ergebnisse
Fibrous dusts - results of studies in experimental animals
The paper reviews experimental studies which investigate critical properties for the toxicity of mineral fibres. Long, thin mineral fibres show a carcinogenic potency if their durability in biological tissues is sufficiently long. The results indicate that man-made mineral fibres can be produced which are less hazardous because of a reduced biodurability.
