i) A metabolically active epithelial cell culture system was developed to screen the carcinogenicity of mineral fibres and to study the mechanism of their toxicity. ii) A significant role of the silicon receptors in the environmental and evolutionary biochemistry was proposed. iii) Toxicological evaluation of an asbestos substitute Wollastonite commercially used in India was conducted, which was found less toxic than Chrysotile asbestos. iv) Appraisal of air pollution problems and a better understanding of pulmonary biochemistry were achieved. v) Methods were developed to study the molecular mechanisms of the toxicity of toxic fibers and particles at the DNA level. The mechanism of carcinogenic and co-carcinogenic behaviour of asbestos was also elucidated to some extent using in vitro and in vivo model systems. vi) The significance of oxidative stress induced by mineral fibers was highlighted, and dietary antioxidants were suggested.
