The role of iron unveiled: An inert synthetic iron-free asbestos nanofibre has been used to clarify at the atomic level the role of iron in fibre-induced toxicity. Upon progressive iron loading, production of reactive oxygen species was inversely related to iron clustering, with low-iron fibres being more reactive than highly loaded ones (see picture).
