    Respiration-like stretching of lung cells in cell culture model influences their reaction on nanoparticles

    Researchers of the Leibniz Research Alliance Nanosafety, Saarland University and TU Dortmund analysed a cell culture model that mimics the real conditions a little closer – they grew human lung cells on flexible surfaces that were stretched in a respiration-like mode. Lung cells that were stretched reacted in a way that resembled an inflammatory response.
