Bonaldo MF, Pestano CB, Ribeiro MC, Machado-Santelli GM, Mori L, Oliveira AR: Comparative characterization of a human large cell lung carcinoma cell line and the xenograft derived cell line. The exposure to chrysotile fibers can cause DNA damage, and this damage can be associated with centrosome amplification too. 2) Earlier asbestos fibre burden from surgery or bronchoalveolar lavage had to be available. 2005, 230: 6-19. All these studies suffer from the fact that they have no measured starting point of the asbestos fibre burden in the human lung tissue to compare their results to because of their cross-sectional design. 1997, 377: 77-87. According to Roggli and Pratt [22], 200 asbestos bodies per gram of wet lung tissue correspond to two asbestos bodies in a histological specimen of 2×2 cm at a 5 µm section thickness. Here, amphibole asbestos was the dominant fibre type at autopsy (table 1, figure 4). After 24 h in culture, the medium was changed to 2 mL of fresh medium with chrysotile fibers at an approximated final concentration of 0.25 mg/mL. Two patients with fibre analysis from a bronchoalveolar lavage are not considered here. The German Mesothelioma Register had 23 955 datasets available with asbestos body counts performed during routine examinations of lung tissue samples or bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) generated between 1987 and 2015. Google ScholarÂ. In contrast, the long crocidolite fibers had a T{sub 1/2} > 1000 days and initiated a rapid inflammatory response in the lung following exposure resulting in a 5-fold increase in fibrotic response within 91 days. HK2 cells treated with chrysotile for 48 h and recovered in additional periods of 24, 48 and 72 h in normal medium showed increased frequency of multinucleated and apoptotic cells. It is well known that chrysotile fibre numbers in the human lungs are lower than amphibole fibre numbers [8–11], although chrysotile was more frequently used in industry. After 48 h chrysotile exposure and 24 h of recovery in normal medium many fibers were found inside the HK2 cells. BMC Cancer Histopathological evaluation was performed by a pathologist who was highly experienced in the assessment of asbestos-induced changes. The time period between tissue removals varied from 4 to 21 years (median 8 years). Manage cookies/Do not sell my data we use in the preference centre. Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces. HK2 cells treated with chrysotile for 48 h and recovered for additional 24 h in normal culture medium showed increased frequency of morphological nuclear alterations. c) Transmission electron microscopy image of a chrysotile fibre and the corresponding EDX spectra (d). The fibers remained in contact with the cells for a period of 48 h, after which the medium was changed. After chrysotile treatment and 24 h recovery the peak in 2C is not so evident, and most of mononucleated cells presented DNA content > 2C till 4C. In only 8% the result of the asbestos body count from autopsy was below the sample obtained during surgery.

Taking the maximum count from each patient the first analysis produced a median of 1623 (431–9750), and the second analysis of 4269 (714–53 663) asbestos bodies per gram of wet lung tissue (table 1). BMC Cancer 8, 181 (2008). However, the mechanism by which asbestos produce malignancy is unclear at the present moment [5]. Free Radic Biol Mol. Cytokinesis failure can also generate cells with abnormal centrosome number, since the centrosome duplication occurs in G1/S [18] and in this context the cytokinesis failure can be a process involved in centrosome amplification observed in treated cells. Even at the time of the first tissue/BAL sampling, the patients had no longer been exposed to asbestos. After that, the cells were washed three times with PBSA and incubated with 2nd antibody (anti-mouse FITC or Cy5, diluted 1:200) for 2 h. The nuclei were stained with propidium iodide and actin filaments with FICT-phalloidin for 20 min. Aberrant mitosis and multi-polar spindles observed in asbestos treated cells could lead to the incorrect chromosome segregation and result in aneuploid cells [9, 10]. 2005, 41: 277-283.

In DNA histograms (N vs. C plot) the nuclei of mononucleated cells are represented in black, the nuclei of binucleated cells are in white and the nuclei of multinucleated cells are in gray, and after 48 h chrysotile treatment were used three different times of recovery in free-fiber medium (24 h, 48 h and 72 h). In order to quantify the comparative clearance of chrysotile and the amphibole asbestos tremolite, both fibers were evaluated in an inhalation biopersistence study that followed the … rapidly cleared from the lungs, a small frac-tion seemedtoberetainedindefinitely. 2006, 96: 49-64. 14. However, some fibers seem to be interacting with the nucleus (Figure 4A–B). Although the hazardous nature of amphibole fibres is not challenged [8, 14], the impact of chrysotile fibres is a matter of discussion [15, 16] and further research is needed [17].

chrysotile cleared from lungs

Fukasawa K: Centrosome amplification, chromosome instability and cancer development. We believe that the article has serious shortcomings, as follows. The asbestos fibers then stick to the lining of a person’s lungs where many of the fibers will likely remain permanently. With the presence of aneuploid cells and cells with multipolar spindles, the observation of centrosomes was important to the analyses of cell cycle disruptions. Chromosome instability can also be caused by loss of mitotic checkpoint functions, imperfections in kinetochore functions and centrosome amplification. Owing to their extreme biopersistence, the fibres cannot be biologically reduced by the lung macrophages. Our results show that asbestos continues to be demonstrable in human lungs, that also chrysotile can be identified after many years, and that there is no significant reduction of asbestos fibre concentrations in lung tissues over time after exposure cessation. Those fibers do not interact with the cell, and they were removed from the culture with the medium changing after 48 h treatment. Apoptotic cells could be caused by checkpoint activation due several DNA or cell damage, or by centrosome amplification. Three independent experiments were done, and more than 500 nuclei for each treatment and control cells were analyzed, with the use of a 40X objective. Article  Below are the links to the authors’ original submitted files for images. lungs: new insights into the chrysotile debate” To the Editor: The article by FEDER et al. This is in line with the half-life times of a few weeks to several months found by Churg for chrysotile in human lung tissues [8]. Asbestos fibre analyses in the lungs of asbestos-exposed workers have a long tradition in establishing a link between exposure and disease [7]. Both examinations were performed after exposure cessation (median: surgery, 9.5 years; autopsy, 22 years). DNA Histograms of control and chrysotile treated cells. III/01;2001. Individual asbestos concentrations in lung tissue remained stable across intervals of 4–21 years between the two tissue excisions. It is relevant to notice that cells in final phases of mitotic division were observed in greater frequency in control cells rather than in chrysotile treated cells. The fibers longer than 20 μm in length are cleared with a half-time of 7 h. By 2 days postexposure all long fibers have dissolved/disintegrated into shorter pieces. The mechanisms involved in centrosome amplification and the relationship between the cell and the centrosome cycle regulation seems to be strongly connected, since some proteins are involved in both cycles, like cdk2 and cyclin E, which promote the entry in S and the centrosome duplication [16–18]. 1994, 7: 321-334. Asbestosis grading followed national [24] and international criteria [6, 25], i.e. In these cases the microtubules seemed to be organized, forming the midbody despite the presence of the fiber (Figure 3C–E). CAS  The centrosome amplification has been proposed as a mechanism of elimination of damage cells, causing the "mitotic catastrophe" [27–29]. Privacy Freedom to design, conduct, interpret, and publish research is not compromised by this. Walker C, Everitt J, Barrett JC: Possible cellular and molecular mechanisms of asbestos carcinogenicity. Unfortunately, there is no way to eliminate asbestos fibers from a person’s lungs completely. Our samples are taken from different tissue excisions from the same patient. Earlier studies defined biopersistence of asbestos in lung tissue after animal experiments [18, 19, 33] or hypothetical models that estimated baseline exposure concentrations from measuring airborne asbestos concentrations at workplaces; these data were then associated with autopsy results [8, 10, 14, 20]. Cell Biol Int Rep. 1991, 15: 229-41. "These findings provide an important basis for substantiating both kinetically and pathologically the differences between chrysotile and the amphibole tremolite. Part of Additionally, 3D reconstruction of confocal images, detecting fibers by their own auto-fluorescence, represented an important approach in the study of cell-fibers interaction, and evidenced fibers inside the cytoplasm and closely associated with chromatin. A qualitative fibre analysis by EDX analysis demonstrated chrysotile as the main fibre in most tissue samples (66.7%) with asbestos exposure cessation dating back up to 37 years. Chrysotile has been considered a quite safe type of fiber due mainly of the lack of evidence of its association with health problems and due to biopersistence data, indicating its fast elimination from lung tissues. "Data suggest that amphiboles are the major cause of mesotheliomas in asbestos workers." Figure 3 shows that after exposure ends, there was little or no clearance of either chrysotile or tremolite from the lungs of the Thetford minersandmillers. Moreover, they could also be the result of the multipolar spindles that cannot complete the mitotic division and would originate a cell with many nuclei. They were not as common as chrysotile asbestos in commercial products. Eur Mol Biol Org J. Nat Cell Biol.

Article  Adherent cells were fixed with formaldehyde 3.7% for 30 min, washed three times with PBSA and permeabilized with Triton X-100 0.5% for 10 min. The time course of events is illustrated in figure 2. Short exposure to chrysotile has not been associated with any histopathological alteration of lung tissue, in contrast to amphibole exposure, which is related to inflammatory response, granuloma and mild interstitial fibrosis [3, 4]. Twenty-five years of fiber analysis: what have we learned? Churg A, Wright JL, Gilks B, DePaoli L: Rapid short-term clearance of chrysotile compared with amosite asbestos in the guinea pig. In our routine examinations great importance is set to keep losses at the lowest possible level when processing the samples and centrifugation is not used. Electron microscopic analyses of fibre types in this study were performed in autoptic tissues. This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. This study addresses the question whether the asbestos fibre burden in human lungs decreases with time after exposure cessation. 13 Page Numbers. This study is the first to present data from intra-individual longitudinal asbestos fibre analyses that were obtained by means of standardised analytical procedures in the lung tissues of patients with previous asbestos exposure at intervals of several years (figure 2). Thus fibre clearance and biopersistence are considered the most important factors for diagnosis and risk assessment of malignant and non-malignant diseases. Other proposed mechanisms for fibers carcinogenicity were: chronic inflammatory reaction induced by fiber contact with enhanced cytokines and growth factors production; catalysis of reactive radical species (such as ROS) resulting in direct or indirect DNA mutations [23, 24]. Amphibole-fibre with the corresponding spectra obtained by energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis. chrysotile.com O r, le chr ysotil e est r apide me n t évacué de s poumons, con trair em ent aux amphiboles (crocidolite et amosite) q ui sont reconnues po ur leur n iv eau de bio pe rsistance [...] Scheme of apoptosis, multinucleation and aneuploid HK2 cells formation after chrysotile exposure. Hire an asbestos remediation professional. No sampling site was given in 8.3%, and 16.7% were from BAL. MacCorkle RA, Slattery SD, Nash DR, Brinkley BR: Intracellular protein binding to asbestos induces aneuploidy in human lung fibroblasts. Then, the cells were treated with RNAase for 30 min and incubated with the primary antibody (anti-γ-tubulin, Sigma) diluted 1:800, or anti-β-tubulin (Sigma, diluted 1:200) overnight. Am Rev Respir Dis. Additionally an EDX analysis has been done to determine the asbestos fibre type. The aneuploidy has been associated with tumor progression, worst prognosis and high probability of tumoral relapse since the loss or gain of even one single or part of a chromosome can introduce additional mutations leading to more aggressive malignant phenotypes [11]. The latency period from first asbestos exposure to the manifestation of an asbestos-induced disease may be 10–60 years with shorter times for asbestosis and plaques and longer times for lung cancer and mesothelioma. Since genotoxicity is a general prerequisite for the development of malignancy, a great amount of data, collected in several end-point tests, has shown that the exposure to asbestos fibers results in chromosomal aberrations and mutations. The 3D reconstruction (G) evidence the fiber involved by chromatin. The authors declare that they have no competing interests. AB: asbestos bodies. Our study again confirms what has been postulated by Churg and dePaoli [21]: both studies “imply that the failure of chrysotile to accumulate in human lungs reflects events that occur early after exposure rather than long-term clearance mechanisms” and is best explained by the natural defence mechanisms of the human lung, e.g. inhaled. The DNA from nuclei of mononucleated, binucleated and multinucleated cells was quantified independently both in control and in chrysotile treated cells. Ansrnncr Lung cancer, asbestosis, and, to a lesser extent, pleural mesothelioma have been linked to inhalation of chrysotile [MgrSirOr(OH)o] asbestos. In this study were used human lung cancer cells, which have mutations required for acquisition of malignant phenotypes. As TEM is considered to be the gold standard for fibre analysis [6, 26], we also applied this method to the available samples confirming the FE-SEM data. Illustrated are the results of the highest asbestos body count in relation to time (a) and all asbestos body counts from one patient's lungs separately (b). The centrosome amplification is classically associated with aneuploidy. Chrysotile is considered less harmful to human health than other types of asbestos fibers. 2000, 2: 90-95. 15 Issue. Chrysotile is cleared rapidly from the lung, whereas amphiboles (crocidolite and amosite) are characterized by extremely long biopersistence. "Calidria chrysotile cleared from the lung with a half-time of 0.3 days, 7 hours, which is faster than any other commercial mineral fiber." It has been shown that chrysotile fibers induce chromosome aberrations in human lymphocytes from whole blood cultures, peritoneal fluid cells and bone marrow cells of mice [7]. Asbestos-related changes of the lung have been shown to predominantly affect the lower lobe; this will only be reflected adequately when different samples are analysed separately. Machado-Santelli GM, Mori L, Pereira CA: Prediction of relapse in patients with breast cancer by DNA cytometry. Scheme of patient selection. mucociliary clearance in the bronchi and expectoration, and possibly acid hydrolysis by lysosomes. Age at death ranged from 62 to 82 years (median 76.5 years). The nuclear DNA content from control and chrysotile treated cells was quantified independently by image analysis with the software CIRES. This also explains why we could not identify a correlation between the chrysotile content and the time interval from last exposure or the duration of exposure. Cancer Lett. Matsumoto Y, Hayashi K, Nishida E: Cyclin-dependent kinase 2 (Cdk2) is required for centrosome duplication in mammalian cells. Shukla A, Gulumian M, Hei TK, Kamp D, Rahman Q, Mossman BT: Multiple roles of oxidants in pathogenesis of asbestos-induced diseases. Fibres may also be destroyed by uncontrolled use of ultrasound or may be lost during multiple steps of centrifugation [28]. In some patients fibre numbers obtained after autopsies were higher than those after surgery. Fibers longer than 20 µm were cleared with a half-time of 1.3 days, most likely by dissolution and breakage into shorter fibers. 2005, 6: 2-9. Assuming a variation by a factor of seven to 10 for asbestos concentrations within a human lung [29] definitely places the asbestos fibre concentrations in 90% of our patients within the range of the samples that had been analysed 4–21 years earlier (figure 3). The tissues were obtained in 50% from the right lung and in 25% from the left lung. The cytokinesis failure form cells with centrosome amplification, that could entry mitosis with multipolar spindles and complete or not cytokinesis, leading to aneuploid cells and/or multinucleation. Chrysotile fibers in interphasic cells were normally located in perinuclear region, and also in the middle of the nuclei in multinucleated cells (Additional file 2). http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2407/8/181/prepub, Additional file 2: Chrysotile fibers in an interphasic multinucleated HK2 cell. This study is the first to present longitudinal intra-individual data about the asbestos fibre burden in living human lungs. For electron microscopic analysis main parts of the body of the fibre are destroyed to access the core fibre. This interaction may decrease when the exposure to asbestos stops because chrysotile fibers are more rapidly cleared from the lungs. 1999, 9: 429-432. Its clearance from the lung is faster and, in comparison to amphibole forms of asbestos, chrysotile asbestos fail to accumulate in the lung tissue due to a mechanism involving fibers fragmentation in short pieces. Chrysotile, but no … The macrophages die and form the typical asbestos bodies [7, 33]. Yes Journal. Internalized fibers seem to interact with the chromatin during mitosis, and they could also interfere in cytokinesis, leading to cytokinesis failure which forms aneuploid or multinucleated cells with centrosome amplification. Certain chrysotile fibres which, like amphibole fibres, have successfully overcome the defence mechanisms of the lung and penetrated deeply into the alveoli can no longer be eliminated, and are therefore traceable in the human lung for many years. PubMed  The fibers were washed with tap water and activated by sonication at controlled pH (7.4) as described elsewhere [20]. In 33.3% of samples mainly amphibole was found by FE-SEM/EDX analysis (65% to 90%) (table 1, figure 4), but in the other 66.7% chrysotile was the dominant asbestos fibre (at different percentages of 80% to 95%) (table 1, figure 5). The duration and intensity of expo- sure, along with fiber size and shape and mineral type (surface and chemical properties) appear to play important roles in the development of these diseases. Apoptotic cells, identified by the presence of fragmented chromatin, represented 0.26% of control cells. In contrast, in control cells the frequency of multi-polar metaphases was around 5%. This is in line with the results of other authors who found mainly chrysotile in lungs of German patients [9]. CAS  The immunofluorescence with anti-γ-tubulin antibody permitted the analyses of the centrosome number in mitotic cells, and metaphase and anaphase cells with more than two centrosomes were observed in frequency similar to cells with multipolar spindles. The fibers between 5 and 20μm in length were cleared with a half-time of 7 days. The median pulmonary asbestos fibre concentration (total of asbestos bodies and bare fibres ) was 1623 at surgery and 2202 at autopsy (supplementary material). Support statement: The Institute of Pathology gets third-party funds from the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) for research of the German Mesothelioma Register. With restriction of tissue availability the asbestoses were still clearly confirmed from surgery tissue. At the time of the first tissue sampling the last asbestos exposure had ended 3–29 years ago (median 9.5 years). The pattern of microtubules in interphasic treated cells is similar to control cells, however in multinucleated cells a reorganization of cytoskeleton in a radiated distribution was observed. Article  Chrysotile treated cells during cell cycle. Article  The unique benefit of the data presented here is to have a measured starting point of the asbestos fibre burden of the human lung tissue to compare later findings with. However ninety to ninety five percent of all asbestos products manufactured have been made from chrysotile asbestos, from 1874 when asbestos was first used for industrial applications to the present. Chrysotile effects on human lung cell carcinoma in culture: 3-D reconstruction and DNA quantification by image analysis. However, some fibers interacting with the nucleus were observed. Tissue removal was due to a suspected tumour (58.3%), to pleural thickening (16.7%) or to lung fibrosis of unknown origin (8.3%). Twelve datasets with individual longitudinal information were discovered with a median interval of about 8 years (range 4–21 years). Lengauer C, Kinzler KW, Vogelstein B: Genetic instability in colorectal cancers. The frequency of cells with two or more nuclei increased from about 15% in control cells to 45% in chrysotile-treated cells, reaching approximately 65% after longer recovery time (P < 0.01, Table 1). For comparability of the data, all counts provided in the original historical counting protocol were calculated to gram of wet lung tissue. Such multiple tissue samples that are suitable for fibre analyses can be collected only by autopsies. Chrysotile fibre with the corresponding spectra obtained by energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX). Takada S, Kelkar A, Theurkauf WE: Drosophila checkpoint kinase 2 couples centrosome function and spindle assembly to genomic integrity. Please note: supplementary material is not edited by the Editorial Office, and is uploaded as it has been supplied by the author. The major health hazards associated with asbestos are fibrogenicity and carcinogenicity, with lung cancer and mesothelioma as the main representatives. Dopp E, Yadav S, Ansari FA, Bhattacharya K, von Recklinghausen U, Rauen U, Rödelsperger K, Shokouhi B, Geh S, Rahman Q: ROS mediated genotoxicity of asbestos-cement in mammalian lung cells in vitro. Data of patients and pathologic autopsy findings. The image stacks were used for 3D reconstruction (B), evidencing the spatial interaction between cell and fiber, where the fiber seems to segment the nucleus. Studies have shown that amphibole fibers are more likely than chrysotile asbestos to increase the risk of mesothelioma. So the multinucleation observed after treatment could be a consequence of the direct fiber-chromatin interaction leading to its fragmentation, or a consequence of the cytokinesis failure resulting in cells with more than one nucleus. Google ScholarÂ. Multi-polar spindles were observed in more than 50% of metaphasic/anaphasic cells in chrysotile treated cells. Science. However, the induction of apoptosis can also be a consequence of checkpoint activation due to a several DNA and cell damage (Figure 5). 2005, 15: 303-311. Given a section thickness of 2–4 µm and two to four section specimens, this is equivalent to about 500 asbestos bodies per gram of wet lung tissue evaluated in lung dust analysis. b) The EDX spectra of the fibre with magnesium (Mg), silicon (Si) and iron (Fe). These data are summarized in Table 1. Pulmonary asbestos fibre burden was stable between both examinations (median 1623/4269 asbestos bodies per gram wet lung). Contrib Microbiol. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) may also be used. 1998, 157: 1666-1680. The differences of frequency of apoptotic, mononucleated, binucleated and multinucleated cells were tested, between the control situation and after the chrysotile treatment, considering the three periods used of recovery in normal medium. California Privacy Statement, Chrysotile is dissolved completely when acids are applied [12]. This approach affords the opportunity of interpreting the asbestos concentrations in direct relation to histology. Other evidence shows that chrysotile causes a much lower mesothelioma risk than amosite or crocidolite.12, 13 The rapid clearance of chrysotile from the lung with a half-life of a few months3 explains its virtual absence in our samples, and implies that we cannot estimate its effects except by noting that amphibole lung burdens account very well for mesothelioma incidence. [FE-SEM Workbook: Determination of Inorganic Fibres in Human Lung Tissue], Assessment of asbestos body formation by high resolution FEG-SEM after exposure of Sprague-Dawley rats to chrysotile, crocidolite, or erionite. Asbestos fibres, therefore, remain in the lung where their sustained presence causes lung disease. Among workers sampled, riveters had the highest phase contrast microscopy equivalent asbestos concentrations, with 8 hour time-weighted average personal exposures ranging between 0.003 and 0.157 fibres cm −3. CAS  Chrysotile is associated with mesothelioma when "highly contaminated with amphiboles." Intra-individual longitudinal data display: the asbestos fibre burden in living human lungs is stable over many years http://ow.ly/VtPF30bRETz. Electron microscopy demonstrated a preponderance of chrysotile (median 80%). AWMF 2010. Canadian chrysotile clears in a range similar to that of glass and stone wools. The database of the German Mesothelioma Register was screened for patients with asbestos body counts of at least 500 fibres per gram of wet lung, which had been analysed twice from different tissue excisions at minimum intervals of 4 years. A) Confocal image of a HK2 cell after 48 h chrysotile exposure showing an internalized fiber (pink) interacting with the nuclei (red, stained with PI). Since the asbestos fibre concentrations had remained stable in the patients investigated, our data indicate that the well-known and scientifically recognised reduction of chrysotile fibres in human lung tissue [8, 11, 39] must have occurred at a very early time point. It is easily seen in (b) that the counts from surgery are within the range of the counts from autopsy.

Online ISSN: 1399-3003, Copyright © 2020 by the European Respiratory Society. Its clearance from the lung is faster than it is with amphibole fibers, for chrysotile asbestos fails to accumulate in the lung tissue due to a mechanism involving fibers fragmentation in short pieces. of Cell and Developmental Biology, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, University of Sao Paulo, Av. Three of 10 workers had pleural plaques on CT examin… In contrast, the long crocidolite fibers had a T 1/2 > 1000 days and initiated a rapid inflammatory response in the lung following exposure resulting in a 5-fold increase in fibrotic response within 91 days. Chrysotile 5R (Quebec Standard) obtained from SAMA Mineração de Amianto Ltda (Minaçu, GO, Brazil) were kindly provided by Dr. Flavia M. Cassiola. Bonaldo MF, Pestano CB, Ribeiro MC, Machado-Santelli GM, Mori L, Oliveira AR: Comparative characterization of a human large cell lung carcinoma cell line and the xenograft derived cell line. The exposure to chrysotile fibers can cause DNA damage, and this damage can be associated with centrosome amplification too. 2) Earlier asbestos fibre burden from surgery or bronchoalveolar lavage had to be available. 2005, 230: 6-19. All these studies suffer from the fact that they have no measured starting point of the asbestos fibre burden in the human lung tissue to compare their results to because of their cross-sectional design. 1997, 377: 77-87. According to Roggli and Pratt [22], 200 asbestos bodies per gram of wet lung tissue correspond to two asbestos bodies in a histological specimen of 2×2 cm at a 5 µm section thickness. Here, amphibole asbestos was the dominant fibre type at autopsy (table 1, figure 4). After 24 h in culture, the medium was changed to 2 mL of fresh medium with chrysotile fibers at an approximated final concentration of 0.25 mg/mL. Two patients with fibre analysis from a bronchoalveolar lavage are not considered here. The German Mesothelioma Register had 23 955 datasets available with asbestos body counts performed during routine examinations of lung tissue samples or bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) generated between 1987 and 2015. Google ScholarÂ. In contrast, the long crocidolite fibers had a T{sub 1/2} > 1000 days and initiated a rapid inflammatory response in the lung following exposure resulting in a 5-fold increase in fibrotic response within 91 days. HK2 cells treated with chrysotile for 48 h and recovered in additional periods of 24, 48 and 72 h in normal medium showed increased frequency of multinucleated and apoptotic cells. It is well known that chrysotile fibre numbers in the human lungs are lower than amphibole fibre numbers [8–11], although chrysotile was more frequently used in industry. After 48 h chrysotile exposure and 24 h of recovery in normal medium many fibers were found inside the HK2 cells. BMC Cancer Histopathological evaluation was performed by a pathologist who was highly experienced in the assessment of asbestos-induced changes. The time period between tissue removals varied from 4 to 21 years (median 8 years). Manage cookies/Do not sell my data we use in the preference centre. Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces. HK2 cells treated with chrysotile for 48 h and recovered for additional 24 h in normal culture medium showed increased frequency of morphological nuclear alterations. c) Transmission electron microscopy image of a chrysotile fibre and the corresponding EDX spectra (d). The fibers remained in contact with the cells for a period of 48 h, after which the medium was changed. After chrysotile treatment and 24 h recovery the peak in 2C is not so evident, and most of mononucleated cells presented DNA content > 2C till 4C. In only 8% the result of the asbestos body count from autopsy was below the sample obtained during surgery. Thank you for your interest in spreading the word on European Respiratory Society . 1989, 139: 885-90. Interdisziplinäre S2-Leitlinie der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Pneumologie und Beatmungsmedizin und der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Arbeitsmedizin und Umweltmedizin”. Taking the maximum count from each patient the first analysis produced a median of 1623 (431–9750), and the second analysis of 4269 (714–53 663) asbestos bodies per gram of wet lung tissue (table 1). BMC Cancer 8, 181 (2008). However, the mechanism by which asbestos produce malignancy is unclear at the present moment [5]. Free Radic Biol Mol. Cytokinesis failure can also generate cells with abnormal centrosome number, since the centrosome duplication occurs in G1/S [18] and in this context the cytokinesis failure can be a process involved in centrosome amplification observed in treated cells. Even at the time of the first tissue/BAL sampling, the patients had no longer been exposed to asbestos. After that, the cells were washed three times with PBSA and incubated with 2nd antibody (anti-mouse FITC or Cy5, diluted 1:200) for 2 h. The nuclei were stained with propidium iodide and actin filaments with FICT-phalloidin for 20 min. Aberrant mitosis and multi-polar spindles observed in asbestos treated cells could lead to the incorrect chromosome segregation and result in aneuploid cells [9, 10]. 2005, 41: 277-283. This article is published under license to BioMed Central Ltd. BIA-Arbeitsmappe 26. Together, this kind of data support the hypothesis proposed to fibers carcinogenicity mechanism based on mitosis physical interference of fibers resulting in chromosomal instability. The amphibole fibers (crocidolite and amosite) are more potent causes of lung cancer and mesothelioma. The external surface of the crystal structures of the amphiboles is quartz-like, and has the chemical resistan… Pathak S, Multani AS: Aneuploidy, stem cells and cancer. To analyse the core fibre we used FE-SEM, which has a higher resolution than SEM; there is also less damage to the fibre than with TEM. In DNA histograms (N vs. C plot) the nuclei of mononucleated cells are represented in black, the nuclei of binucleated cells are in white and the nuclei of multinucleated cells are in gray, and after 48 h chrysotile treatment were used three different times of recovery in free-fiber medium (24 h, 48 h and 72 h). In order to quantify the comparative clearance of chrysotile and the amphibole asbestos tremolite, both fibers were evaluated in an inhalation biopersistence study that followed the … rapidly cleared from the lungs, a small frac-tion seemedtoberetainedindefinitely. 2006, 96: 49-64. 14. However, some fibers seem to be interacting with the nucleus (Figure 4A–B). Although the hazardous nature of amphibole fibres is not challenged [8, 14], the impact of chrysotile fibres is a matter of discussion [15, 16] and further research is needed [17]. For two patients the lower count from surgery tissue could be explained histologically (supplementary material).
