NIOSH Scientists Conduct Pulmonary Exposure Study

Nine NIOSH researchers in West Virginia recently published a study regarding the potential cardiovascular effects of pulmonary exposure to SWCNTs. In the study, mice were exposed to SWCNTs by intrapharyngeal instillation. The mice showed oxidative stress in lung, aorta, and heart tissues seven days after exposure, which declined to control levels within 28 days. They … Continue Reading

Carbon Nanotubes Can “Swim”
