Original Abstract

Harmful effects of asbestos inhalation are known since 1930s. The use of asbestos was phased out since 1980s and definitely banned in 2005. Asbestos were substituted by man-made vitreous fibers (MMVFs). However, potential toxicity of MMVFs is the object of research in recent years. Glass wool fibers were used in this study for in vitro measurement of deposition in a model of human lungs.
