Dose- and Time-dependent Effects of Sub-chronic Functionalized MWCNT Exposure on Human Mesothelial Cell Neoplastic Transformation Potential

, , , , , , , ,
Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) are characterized by asbestos-like fiber morphology and surface chemistries. Physicochemical properties of MWCNTs that influence pleural mesothelioma potential are unknown, but critically needed to enhance safe-by-design nanotechnology. We hypothesized that surface [...]

Concern-Driven Approach to human health risk assessment of nanomaterials: A Nanoparticle Screening Assessment Framework

, , , , , ,
The framework proposed here was developed under the Canada-US Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) Nanotechnology Initiative and represents a concern-driven approach to focus human health concerns and additional testing requirements for nanoparticles based on their physical [...]
