|Abstract:||We investigated the synergic effects of components of particulate matter with aerodynamic diameters ≤2.5 μm (PM2.5) on airway inflammation. Co-exposure to cadmium (Cd) and 9, 10-phenanthrenequinone (9, 10-PQ) additively/synergistically increased pro-inflammatory responses in airway epithelial cells, whereas co-exposure to Cd and phenanthrene resulted in no acceleration. These results suggest that the combination of metal and a quinone derivative can contribute to the exacerbation of respiratory diseases by PM2.5.|
