Screening for Toxic Nanoparticles

The authors of a review of past studies published last week in the journal Science suggest a strategy for screening the most dangerous nanoparticles more efficiently, which could help avert potential disasters and allow the development of new technologies to continue. The strategy would use "predictive toxicology," which looks for subtle signs that the cells in a culture are starting to defend themselves, indicating that the particles they've been exposed to could be dangerous.
