What level of uncertainty is acceptable? When searching the literature, we find plenty of articles where the use of nanoparticles seem to have no negative effects in a variety of settings. Along with plenty of articles demonstrating the opposite - that nanoparticles do indeed have a detrimental impact.
When will the knowledge and concerns about nanoparticles from the field of toxicology bridge over to the continent of cell isolation?
