UNLABELLED Understanding the excretion pathway is one of the most important prerequisites for the safe use of nanoparticles in biomedicine. However, the excretion of nanoparticles in animals remains largely unknown, except for some particles very small in size. Here we report a novel natural pathway for nanoparticle excretion, the intestinal goblet cell (GC) secretion pathway (IGCSP). Direct live observation of the behavior of 30-200nm activated carbon nanoparticles (ACNP) demonstrated that… CONTINUE READING
