This article presents a summary of the in vitro data currently available on three classes of nanoparticles in order to help researchers begin to address their potential use as diagnostic and therapeutic tools to improve human health and their potential toxicity. The article discusses the differing data that has been gathered for these classes of nanomaterials due to variy experimental conditions as well as differing nanoparticle physiochemical properties, and the need for researchers to understand how these multiple factors influence the toxicity of nanoparticles so undesirable properties can be avoided in their medical use.
