Title:
Surface modifications of silica nanoparticles are crucial for their inert versus proinflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. 
Abstract:
Silica (SiO?) nanoparticles (NPs) are widely used in diverse industrial and biomedical applications. Their applicability depends on surface modifications, which can limit potential health problems.To assess the potential impact of SiO? NP exposure and NPs chemical modifications in allergic airway inflammation.Mice were sensitized by five repetitive intraperitoneal injections of ovalbumin/aluminum hydroxide (1 ?g) over 42 days, then intratracheally instilled with plain or modified SiO? NPs (50 ?g...    »
