Abstract:
In collaboration with scientists from the Italian Institute for Health (Istituto Superiore di Sanità) JRC scientists investigated the carcinogenic potential of pure and chemically functionalised multiwall carbon nanotubes using the Balb/3T3 cells. Results showed no cytotoxicity nor genotoxicity , but some morphological transformation through cell intraction of nanomaterials could be observed pointing towards a carcinogenic potential. The scientists recommend the integration of various tests, also based on physicochemical characterization of the nanomaterials to clearly evaluate the potential toxicity of nanomaterials.
