Abstract

This article reviews research results current available about the cellular response to nanosized particle exposure, as well as the therapeutic application of selected nanoparticles together with their range of toxic dozes. Effect of therapeutically used nanoparticles on cell membrane, mitochondrial function, prooxidant/antioxidant status, enzyme leakage, DNA, and other biochemical endpoints was elucidated. The paper highlights the need for caution during the use and disposal of such manufactured nanomaterials to prevent unintended environmental impacts.
