    Nanoparticles have been implicated in the development of pleural effusions in exposed factory workers while in experimental animal studies it has been shown that they induce inflammation, fibrosis and carcinogenesis in the pleura. The scope of this study was to investigate the direct effects of silver nanoparticles exposure on the membrane permeability of sheep parietal pleura, of primary sheep pleural cell monolayers and on a human mesothelial cell line. Our findings suggest that acute (30min) exposure increases the pleural permeability ex vivo, while longer (24h) exposure in vivo leads to late decrease of the pleural cell monolayers permeability.
