Nowadays more than thousands of different nanoparticles are known, though no well-defined guidelines to evaluate their potential toxicity and to control their exposure are fully provided. The way of entry of nanoparticles together with their specificities such as chemistry, chemical composition, size, shape or morphology, surface charge and area can influence their biological activities and effects. A specific property may give rise to either a safe particle or to a dangerous one. The small…

Though there have been published reports on the toxic effects of CNTs to date, more studies will still be needed to gain full understanding of their potential toxicity and underlying mechanisms.
Assessment of the In Vivo Toxicity of Gold Nanoparticles
TLDR
Modifying the surface of the GNPs by incorporating immunogenic peptides ameliorated their toxicity, associated with an increase in the ability to induce antibody response, which may be a fundamental determinant of the environmental toxicity of nanoparticles.
Nanotoxicology and in vitro studies: the need of the hour.
TLDR
For nanomaterials to move into the applications arena, it is important that nanotoxicology research uncovers and understands how these multiple factors influence their toxicity so that the ensuing undesirable effects can be avoided.
