Abstract

An increasing number and quantity of manufactured nanoparticles are entering the environment as the diversity of their applications increases, and this will lead to the exposure of both humans and wildlife. However, little is known regarding their potential health effects. We compared the potential biological effects of Ag (silver; nominally 35 and 600-1600 nm) and CeO2 (cerium dioxide; nominally
