BACKGROUND/AIMS Cerium oxide nanoparticles (CeO₂ NPs) are released from diesel engines that use cerium compounds as a catalytic agent to decrease the diesel exhaust particles, leading to human exposure by inhalation to CeO₂ NPs. We have recently demonstrated that pulmonary exposure to CeO₂ NPs induces lung inflammation, thrombosis, and oxidative stress in various organs including kidneys. It is well known that particulate air pollution effects are greater in patients with renal diseases. The…

The combined CDDP + CNPs treatment elevated significantly the coagulation function, relative heart weight, and troponin I, lactate dehydrogenase, interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα), and total nitric oxide levels in the plasma.

PM2.5 exposure induced renal injury via the activation of the autophagic pathway in the rat and HK-2 cell

It is indicated that PM2.5 induced renal function impairment via the activation of the autophagic pathway in renal tubular epithelial cells through exposure to airborne fine particulate matter in vivo and in vitro.

Effects of Particulate Matter on Inflammation and Thrombosis: Past Evidence for Future Prevention

Evidence on the effects of particulate matter on inflammation, oxidative stress, adhesion molecules, and coagulation pathways in enhancing the risk of thrombosis is comprehensively summarized and discussed.

Nanomaterial-mediated autophagy: coexisting hazard and health benefits in biomedicine

It is highlighted that NM-mediated autophagy serves as a double-edged sword, which could be utilized in the treatment of certain diseases related to Autophagy dysfunction, such as cancer, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular disease.

Internalized Nanoceria Modify the Radiation-Sensitivity Profile of MDA MB231 Breast Carcinoma Cells

The discovery shows that internalized nanoceria provide protection from radiation with a corresponding decrease in reactive oxygen species in this type of breast cancer cells and this property confers significant perils and opportunities when utilized in the context of cancer radiation therapy.

Long‐Term Dipeptidyl Peptidase 4 Inhibition Worsens Hypertension and Renal and Cardiac Abnormalities in Obese Spontaneously Hypertensive Heart Failure Rats

Findings indicate that, in some genetic backgrounds, long‐term DPP4 inhibitor treatment is harmful and identify an animal model to study mechanisms of, and test ways to prevent, D PP4 inhibitor–induced pathological conditions.

Tumor necrosis factor-α small interfering RNA alveolar epithelial cell-targeting nanoparticles reduce lung injury in C57BL/6J mice with sepsis

TNF-α siRNA AEC-targeting nanoparticles appear to be effective at improving lung injury-related sepsis, and 50 mg/kg may be a preferred dose option for administration.



The acute pulmonary and thrombotic effects of cerium oxide nanoparticles after intratracheal instillation in mice

Cerium oxide nanoparticles (CeO2 NPs), used as a diesel fuel catalyst, can be emitted into the ambient air, resulting in exposure to humans by inhalation. Recent studies have reported the development

Cerium Oxide Nanoparticles in Lung Acutely Induce Oxidative Stress, Inflammation, and DNA Damage in Various Organs of Mice

Preliminary findings indicate that pulmonary exposure to CeO2 NPs causes oxidative stress, inflammation, and DNA damage in multiple organs.

Cerium oxide nanoparticle-induced pulmonary inflammation and alveolar macrophage functional change in rats

CeO2 induced lung inflammation and injury in lungs which may lead to fibrosis, and CeO2 exposure markedly increased suppressor of cytokine signaling-1 at 1-day and elevated arginase- 1 at 28-day post exposure in lung cells, while osteopontin was significantly elevated in lung tissue at both time points.

Diesel exhaust particles in the lung aggravate experimental acute renal failure.

It is concluded that the presence of DEP in the lung aggravated the renal, pulmonary, and systemic effects of CP-induced ARF, and Histopathological changes in lungs ofDEP-treated rats were aggravated by the combination of CP + DEP.

Inhaled diesel emissions generated with cerium oxide nanoparticle fuel additive induce adverse pulmonary and systemic effects.

Findings indicate that DECe induces more adverse pulmonary effects on a mass basis than DE, and lung accumulation of cerium, systemic translocation to the liver, and delayed clearance are added concerns to existing health effects of DECe.

Effect of diesel exhaust particles on renal vascular responses in rats with chronic kidney disease

Experimental evidence is provided that exposure to particulate air pollution can exacerbate the vascular damage seen in patients with CKD, and Phenylephrine‐induced decreases in RBF and increases in systolic and diastolic blood pressure were severely potentiated in rats exposed to DP, and these actions were significantly augmented in AD‐treated rats.

Cerium oxide nanoparticles attenuate acute kidney injury induced by intra-abdominal infection in Sprague–Dawley rats

The data indicate that CeO2 nanoparticles may be useful as an alternative therapeutic agent or in conjunction with standard medical care for the treatment of peritonitis induced acute kidney injury.

Prolonged Pulmonary Exposure to Diesel Exhaust Particles Exacerbates Renal Oxidative Stress, Inflammation and DNA Damage in Mice with Adenine-Induced Chronic Renal Failure

Prolonged pulmonary exposure to diesel exhaust particles worsen renal oxidative stress, inflammation and DNA damage in mice with adenine-induced chronic renal failure, providing biological plausibility that air pollution aggravates chronic kidney failure.

Oxidative stress, inflammation, and DNA damage in multiple organs of mice acutely exposed to amorphous silica nanoparticles

Results indicate that acute systemic exposure to SiNPs causes oxidative stress, inflammation, and DNA damage in several major organs, and highlight the need for thorough evaluation ofSiNPs before they can be safely used in human beings.
