Cell toxicity of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA): the role of oxidative stress -

In this study, the viability of human lung epithelial cells, BEAS-2B, was investigated after exposure to this monomer. Exposure to HEMA reduced the viability of the BEAS-2B cells as a result of increased apoptosis, interruption of the cell cycle, and decreased cell proliferation.

DNA damage and DNA damage responses in THP-1 monocytes after exposure to spores of either Stachybotrys chartarum or Aspergillus versicolor or to T-2 toxin. -

Mold spores and their associated mycotoxins have been suggested to be the cause of a variety of human health problems such as asthma and allergic rhinitis related to water-damaged indoor environments. Animal studies have shown that mycotoxins may cause a variety of adverse effects, including acute toxic effects and cancer
