Toxicity of Nanoparticles

Nanoparticles with their unique size-dependent properties are at the forefront of advanced material engineering applications in several fields. Metals, non-metals, bio-ceramics, and many polymeric materials are used to produce nanoparticles of the respective materials. These are functional in producing liposomes, PEG and many more. Due to their small size nanoparticles has found to be interacting with human bodies same like of gases. Nanoparticles of the same composition can display behavioral differences when interacting with different environments.  Nanoparticles can enter the human body via inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact. The range of pathologies related to exposure to nanoparticles encompasses  respiratory and even several organs and leads to diseases. Accurate in vitro assessment of nanoparticle cytotoxicity requires a careful selection of the test systems. Due to high adsorption capacity and optical activity, engineered nanoparticles are highly potential in influencing classical cytotoxicity assays.
