Metolachlor--Physiological effect;

Abstract

The goal of this study is to examine and analyze the effects of a widely used herbicide, Metolachlor, on the normal functions and processes of human alveolar monocytes and macrophages. Specifically, it will examine the functions of phagocytosis, apoptosis and the production reactive oxygen species within these cells.
