The silicone controversy: towards a resolution

Abstract

Silicones have achieved widespread use, particularly in breast implants. Once considered inert, certain silicon products can induce chronic inflammation and enhance immune responses to foreign antigens in experimental animals. A recent workshop1 1 The Workshop 'Immunology of Silicones' was held at Bethesda, MD, USA, on 13-14 March 1995. discussed the immunological effects of silicones.
