INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Calcifying nanoparticles, also known as "nanobacteria," are very small bacteria-like structures (0.1-0.5 μm) with the ability to facilitate the precipitation and growth of calcium phosphate in pathological conditions and have been associated with aortic valve calcification. The status of nanobacteria is controversial; some have proposed that they are a new class of living organism while others describe calcifying nanoparticles as mineralo-fetuin complexes.
