Abstract

The cytotoxic and genotoxic properties of two nanomaterials with different characteristics were studied in well-characterized in vitro model systems commonly applied in toxicity testing protocols The overall analysis indicated absence of cytotoxic and genotoxic properties of the nanomaterials, whereas consistently, effects were seen with the positive control agents
