We compared the use of bovine serum albumin (BSA) and Pluronic F108 (PF108) as dispersants for multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) in terms of tube stability as well as pro-fibrogenic effects in vitro and in vivo. While BSA-dispersed tubes were a potent inducer of pulmonary fibrosis, PF108 coating protected the tubes from damaging the lysosomal membrane and initiating a sequence of cooperative cellular events that play a role in the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis. Our results suggest that PF108 coating could be served as a safer design approach for MWCNTs.
