Extract

Rationale: WHO predicts that COPD will become the third leading cause of death worldwide by 2030. A number of recent epidemiological Studies has shown increased adverse pulmonary health effects in people suffering from COPD following exposure to particulate matter. Furthermore, the production nanomaterials for many applications is rapidly progressing. The risks of occupational exposures at working places where engineered nanoparticles, such as multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) are processed, have received limited attention to date. The aim of the current study is to assess potential risks for people suffering from COPD exposed to MWCNTs at the working place, using sophisticated in vitro and in vivo models.
