Abstract The success of an aerosol therapy protocol is contingent upon a proper quantity of drug being delivered to an appropriate site within the respiratory tract to elicit a therapeutic effect. Likewise, an accurate risk assessment of the threat to human health presented by airborne pollutants requires knowledge of their locations of deposition among airways. An identification of those factors which influence the behavior and fate of inhaled particulates, therefore, is important for both the introduction of medicinal agents into the body via the inhalation route and the hazard evaluation of ambient toxicants.
