Gold – Exposure

So far there are no epidemiologic data available on gold (nano)particles.

So far no data exist on environmental exposure with engineered gold nanoparticles.

Gold nanoparticles are taken up by cells. They have been found to be toxic as well as non-toxic. This difference is dependent on size, surface charge and coating of the particles.

Injected gold nanoparticles distribute all over the body of the animals but most varieties have no toxic effect.
