From: Complementary biobank of rodent tissue samples to study the effect of World Trade Center exposure on cancer development

Route of exposure Harvest date post-exposure (days) Treatment Storage format
IN 1, 7, 30, 90 None Frozen
IN 1 Dexamethasone Frozen
IN 1 Drug X Frozen
  1. Strain BL6 and FVBN mice were intranasally-instilled once with WTC dust. In all cases, bio-samples (i.e., heart, kidney, and liver) were harvested 1, 7, 30, and 90 days after exposure, snap-frozen, and stored at − 80 °C. In a parallel study, mice were IP-injected immediately after the exposure with either dexamethasone (0.1 mg/kg) or Drug X (proprietary; 5 mg/kg). I in this study, bio-samples were collected only 24 h post-exposure, and then stored
