Acute toxicity of ferric oxide and zinc oxide nanoparticles in rats.

Abstract

We investigated the toxic effects of inhalation exposure to ferric oxide (Fe2O3) and zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles in rats. Male Wistar rats were consecutively treated with Fe22O3 at 8.5 mg/kg body weight and ZnO nanoparticles at 2.5 mg/kg body weight, twice daily for 3 days. Content of Fe2O3 and ZnO in tissues, biochemical parameters in serum, and… (More)
