Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Numerous investigations have attempted to correlate the physical and chemical characteristics of asbestos with its associated biological toxicity (1-3). While it has been suggested (4-6) that the physical dimensions of asbestos (i.e., surface area, fiber length, diameter and aspect ratio) may affect its carcinogenicity in rats after intrapleural injection, it remains uncertain whether fiber size alone determines the carcinogenic potential. Recent findings. for example, indicate that the surface charge properties of asbestos play a role in its biological activity (7, 8).
