The toxicity of particulate matters, from the incomplete combustion of biomass in fire places, will be investigated. A549 human lung cell cultures are subjected to a constant flow of a conditioned aerosol. After exposure, the responses of the cells are analysed to measure the biological responses such as viability, inflammatory or oxidative stress.
