MSU research sheds new light on health dangers of nanoparticles

Abstract:
The nose, usually the first line of defense against inhaled airborne particles that could damage the lungs, may itself be susceptible to the dangers of extremely small particles, called nanoparticles, which are less than 100 nanometers in size. According to research presented by Michigan State University researchers at seminar at the annual American Association for the Advancement of Science conference titled “Nanotechnology 2006: Toxicology of Nanoparticles,” combustion-derived nanoparticles, or CDNPs, have the ability to collect in the nasal airways, potentially causing a number of ailments, including rhinitis, inflammation of the mucous membranes.
