  • Assessment of nanoparticle release and associated health effect of polymer-silicon composites. 

    Zhu, Huijun; Irfan, Adeel; Sachse, Sophia; Njuguna, James (IOP Publishing. http://dx.doi.org/10.1088/1757-899X/40/1/012015, 2012)
    ZHU, H., IRFAN, A., SACHSE, S. and NJUGUNA, J., 2012. Assessment of nanoparticle release and associated health effect of polymer-silicon composites. IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering, 40, pp. 012015
    Little information is currently available on possible release of nanomaterials or/and nanoparticles (NP) from conventional and novel products and associated health effect. This study aimed to assess the possible release ...
  • Assessment of temporal dose-toxicity relationship of fumed silica nanoparticle in human lung A549 cells by conventional cytotoxicity and H-NMR-based extracellular metabonomic assays. 

    Irfan, Adeel; Cauchi, Michael; Edmands, William; Gooderham, Nigel J.; Njuguna, James; Zhu, Huijun (Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society of Toxicology. http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/toxsci/kfu009, 2014-04)
    IRFAN, A., CAUCHI, M., EDMANDS, W., GOODERHAM, N. J., NJUGUNA, J. and ZHU, H., 2014. Assessment of temporal dose-toxicity relationship of fumed silica nanoparticle in human lung A549 cells by conventional cytotoxicity and H-NMR-based extracellular metabonomic assays. Toxicological Sciences, 138 (2), pp. 354-364.
    As nanoparticles could form aggregates in biological systems, the dynamics of their dispersity drives the temporal effect of nanoparticles in vitro. To test this hypothesis, the fumed silica nanoparticles (SiNPs) that have ...
