Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles Induced Apoptosis and Necrosis in Hepatocellular Carcinoma HepG2 Cells

, , , , , , , , , ,
Targeted drug delivery systems with minimal potential adverse/side effects are gaining utility in diverse applications. Uses of nanomaterials to design such targeted drug delivery are escalating exponentially. Nevertheless, the biocompatibility of nanomaterials is inadequately addressed. [...]

Quantitative Assessment of Nanoparticle Induced Oxidative DNA Damage Using Isotope Dilution Mass Spectrometry

, , , , , ,
Hyphenated mass spectrometry (gas chromatography/mass spectrometry) techniques have been employed as one of the primary analytical tools for investigating the effects of ionizing radiation, chemical/biological carcinogens and oxygen derived free radicals on the induction and [...]

Analytical Strategies for a systematic Characterization of Nanoparticle Release from commercial Spray Products for Exposure Quantification and Risk Assessment

, , , , ,
The characterization of nanoparticle release from consumer spray products is challenging. Therefore, we developed different analytical methods to determine quantity, morphology, size and elemental distribution for engineered nanoparticles in the original spray suspension and the [...]

Risk Ranking Framework to Assess the Health Hazard of Nanomaterial-Containing Products in an Industrial and Consumer Application Setting

, , , , , , ,
The unique combination of size, structure, morphology, physical/chemical characteristics, and quantum properties of nanomaterials, presents a challenging platform in understanding the potential hazards and health risks of engineered nanomaterials and the products that utilize these [...]
