Bacterial Lipopolysaccharide Enhances PDGF Signaling and Pulmonary Fibrosis in Rats Exposed to Carbon Nanotubes

AMERICAN JOURNAL OF RESPIRATORY CELL AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY, 43(2), 142–151.

TL;DR: The data suggest that LPS exacerbates MWCNT-induced lung fibrosis by amplifying production of PDGF-AA in macrophages and epithelial cells, and by increasingPDGF-Ralpha on pulmonary fibroblasts. (via Semantic Scholar)

MeSH headings : Administration, Inhalation; Aerosols; Animals; Asthma / chemically induced; Asthma / immunology; Asthma / pathology; Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid / cytology; Fibrosis / chemically induced; Fibrosis / immunology; Fibrosis / pathology; Humans; Interleukin-13 / immunology; Lung / cytology; Lung / immunology; Lung / pathology; Macrophages / cytology; Macrophages / metabolism; Male; Mice; Mice, Inbred C57BL; Nanotubes, Carbon / adverse effects; Nanotubes, Carbon / ultrastructure; Ovalbumin / immunology; Particle Size; Platelet-Derived Growth Factor / immunology; Random Allocation; Transforming Growth Factor beta1 / immunology
TL;DR: It is indicated that individuals with pre-existing allergic inflammation may be susceptible to airway fibrosis from inhaled multiwalled carbon nanotubes, and combined ovalbumin sensitization and MWCNT inhalation also synergistically increased IL-5 mRNA levels, which could further contribute to airways fibrosis.

2009 journal article

Inhaled carbon nanotubes reach the subpleural tissue in mice

NATURE NANOTECHNOLOGY, 4(11), 747–751.

Surface coatings determine cytotoxicity and irritation potential of quantum dot nanoparticles in epidermal keratinocytes

JOURNAL OF INVESTIGATIVE DERMATOLOGY, 127(1), 143–153.
