The report describes the results of an in vitro study designed to determine the effects of fly ash coated with the oxides of lead, nickel or manganese on alveolar macrophages which defend the deep lung against infectious microorganisms. Since particulates of various sizes exist within the environment, the influence of particle size was also examined in order to provide data helpful in designing pollutant control strategies. It was found that as the concentration of pollutant was increased, the toxicity increased. In addition, the smaller-sized particles were more toxic than larger particulates.
