Nanotechnology Safety

JAMA. 2005;294(20):2564. doi:10.1001/jama.294.20.2564-d

Safety risks associated with nanomaterials, which have structural features with at least one dimension of 100 nm or less, are largely unknown. To help remedy this, a new report on nanotechnology-related health and safety issues defines a screening strategy to test potential toxic effects associated with exposure to nanomaterials (Oberdorster et al. Part Fiber Toxicol. 2005;2:8). The report was authored by a panel of experts convened by the International Life Sciences Institute Research Foundation/Risk Science Institute and sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency.
