Abstract
[Abstract]Inhaled exposure to oil-derived volatile compounds is associated with marine oil spills. After the Prestige oil tanker sank off northern Spain in 2002, subjects involved in coast cleaning showed ongoing or residual lung disease up five years after the exposure. Unknown pulmonary lesions may underlie these functional abnormalities. We aimed to uncover the exact lung pathology caused by oil vapour inhalation by developing an animal model of inhaled exposure to oil-derived volatile compounds. Wistar and Brown Norway rats and C57BL mice were exposed to volatile compounds produced from an oil blend mimicking the Prestige oil spill. Exposed animals inhaled o...
