Mineral Fibres presents the state of the art in the vast multidisciplinary research field of asbestos and of mineral fibres in general. The protagonists of Mineral Fibres are the mineral fibres with their immense complexity and poorly understood biochemical interactions. The approach of the chemist/mineralogist/crystallographer puts the fibre in focus whereas the approach of the .

The use of both techniques as led towards a better understanding of the chemical reactions which occur between fibres and the biological membranes of cells or intracellular organelles. Studies on the prevention of haemolysis and cytotoxicity have also been of use in explaining how asbestos acts a the cellular and molecular levels. The tumorigenesis of mineral fibers is governed by fiber dimensions and inherent differences in the physicochemical properties of the fibers (intrinsic fiber potencies), for example, studies of carcinogenic fibers have found that fiber geometry and length seem to be the most important factors, with long thin fibers having a greater proliferative and tumorigenesis capability than short fibers.

Persistence of man-made mineral fibres (MMMF) and asbestos in rat lungs. Ann Occup Hyg. ; 31 (4B)– Presented here are recent data on the mechanisms of action of different dusts and fibres of industrial interest. Emphasis is placed on the use of cell and organ culture and lavage cell populations obtained from man and laboratory animals to elucidate cellular and molecular events occurring after their interaction with fibrous and non-fibrous particulates including metal compounds. The state of the art in the field of mineral fibres is illustrated and discussed here, with a multidisciplinary approach taking into account all the different scientific strands (biology, chemistry, epidemiology, mineralogy, physics, toxicology etc.).
