Incorporating Realistic Exposures to Transformed Materials into Toxicity Testing


Cecilia Tan, US EPA

Hazard assessment for nanomaterials often involves applying in vitro dose-response data to estimate potential health risks that arise from exposure to products that contain nanomaterials. However, much uncertainty is inherent in relating bioactivities observed in an in vitro system to the perturbations of biological mechanisms that lead to apical adverse health outcomes in living organisms.
