Common Nanoparticle Shown to Be Non-toxic to Blood Cells

Abstract:
Though many kinds of nanoparticles, loaded with a variety of drugs and imaging agents, are making their way toward the clinic, questions about nanoparticle toxicity remain to be answered. Given that the majority of nanoparticles are intended to travel to tumors through the bloodstream, the effects of nanoparticles on blood cells are of particular concern to those developing nanoparticle-based therapeutic and imaging agents. Now, a series of experiments by researchers at the University of Kentucky have found no ill effects when blood cells are exposed to one common type of nanoparticle.
