- Models to Characterise Exposures to Manufactured Nanomaterials in OECD
- 30 June 2022
Read the latest Nanopinion guest column from Vladimir Murashov, Ph.D. and John Howard, M.D. on various models that have been developed to characterise exposure to manufactured nanomaterials, the existing challenges in their application and the proposed solutions.
Nanomaterials and health
Are substances in nanoforms more dangerous than they are in their normal size? Some are and some are not. Just like any other chemical substance, nanomaterials have to be assessed separately.
Nanomaterials are not only used in consumer products, but also in new and innovative medical treatments. Research has shown that nanoparticles can be used to damage and even destroy cancer cells from within.
