Evidence of migration of ingested asbestos into various baboon papio anubis organs


Scanning Electron Microscopy (1): 347-354
Evidence of migration of ingested asbestos into various baboon papio anubis organs
This report presents the results of transmission electron microscopic analysis for asbestos [which causes asbestosis and lung cancer] in 10 organs of the newborn baboon who was orally administered with chrysotile asbestos. The feeding period consisted of 9 days with a cumulative dose of 3 .times. 1013 chrysotile fibers/kg. Analysis of the same 10 organs of a control newborn baboon is also included. The test tissues showed higher levels of asbestos than respective control tissues. The highest concentration of chrysotile fibers was found in the kidney cortex followed by lymph nodes, spleen, colon, esophagus, kidney medulla, stomach and liver. Fiber size distribution of the fibers recovered indicated that the longest fiber was retained in the kidney cortex.
