CIC biomaGUNE analyses impact on health of nanoparticles present in sun creams

Abstract:
CIC biomaGUNE is researching the possible impact on health of metal oxide nanoparticles, such as those of zinc, cerium, titanium and iron. These nanoparticles have numerous practical applications and are present in commercial products as varied as sun creams, protection agents for ultraviolet rays, fuel mixtures, paints, anti-electrostatic coatings and electronic circuits.

These microscopic particles are made up of metal ions the concentration in living organisms of which is normally low. The incorporation of nanoparticles that can eventually degrade within the organism can increase the concentration of these ions. Currently it is unknown how it will affect biochemical processes both at cell level and at the level of the organism itself.
