Two Papers Explore Nanoparticle Safety

Abstract:
A major focus of the NCI Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer is developing the standards and methods needed to ensure that nanomaterials are safe for use in humans, and that products designed for clinical use have a well-defined pathway to follow in the regulatory approval process. To this end, the NCI established the Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory, which over the past year has developed a wide-ranging set of assays for screening nanomaterials and identifying potential toxicities associated with a given nanomaterial. Now, a report from the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) in Washington, DC suggests strongly that the NCL is taking the right approach to the problem of ensuring that nanomaterials designed for biomedical applications are safe for human use.
