Toxicity And Health Hazards
Addresses potential toxicity and health hazard induced by nanomaterials. Describes in vitro models to assess nanoparticle toxicology and lists health effects on the genome, neuronal and respiratory system.
Aims and Scope
This monograph summarizes the current knowledge on potential health hazards induced by nanomaterials from different sources and sort such as food, drugs and silver nanoparticles. Methods to assess toxicity as well as known effects on the genome, neuronal and respiratory system are discussed. Besides the impact on human and animal life the books also addresses aquatic toxicity.
