In the case of simple discontinuities between waveguides, the MMVF provides a full-wave characterization of the complete structure [4].
Pioneer may still be working on its DVD-RW drive but we've yet to see it, nor has NEC shown its MMVF format.
There are some reports regarding the possibility of developing granulomatous lung disease after MMVF exposure.
To determine the possible association of MMVF exposure and the development of sarcoid-like granulomas, Drent et al.
CONTEXT: Man-made vitreous fibers (MMVFs) are noncrystalline inorganic fibrous material used for thermal and acoustical insulation (e.g., rock wool, glass wool, glass microfibers, and refractory ceramic fibers).
DISCUSSION: The contribution of analytical electron microscopy applied in the lung biopsy was imperative to confirm the diagnosis of pneumoconiosis associated with a complex occupational exposure that included both MMVFs and coating materials.
RELEVANCE TO CLINICAL OR PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE: This case study points out the possible participation of other components (coating materials), beyond MMVFs, in the etiology of pneumoconiosis.
Man-made vitreous fibers (MMVF) are inorganic amorphous fibers made from glass, rock, clay, slag, or pure oxide raw material.
To evaluate the distribution of fibers within lungs immediately after their deposition, inhaled and deposited MMVF 10a were studied in hamsters by electron microscopy.
MMVF 10a were kindly provided by Philippe Thevenaz (Research and Consulting Company, Fullinsdorf, Switzerland).
Briefly, aerosols were generated by jet nebulization of droplets of suspensions of MMVF 10a fibers (2 mg/mL in 100% ethanol) into a particle-free air stream.
