Cellular, biochemical and functional effects of ozone: new research and perspectives on ozone health effects



Cellular, biochemical and functional effects of ozone: new research and perspectives on ozone health effects



Toxicology Letters 51(2): 125-45; Discussion 119-23



Ozone, a toxic component of photochemical oxidant air pollution, has been the focus of considerable research efforts for several decades. In spite of this large body of work, questions remain as to the potential risks to human health represented by chronic low-level exposure to ozone. Newer studies in animals have provided fundamental information on the range of biochemical, functional and morphologic responses to ozone exposure. While the response to ozone exposure is extremely complex, some generalities have emerged which may aid attempts to apply the results of these studies to decisions regarding the protection of human health.
