New nanomaterial toxicity study

Researchers have found that exposing human skin cells to multiwalled carbon nanotubes arrests cell cycles and increases cell death. "We are among the first to describe the mechanism for carbon nanomaterial's toxicity at the molecular level," Fanqing Frank Chen of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory said. more @ nanotechweb.org
