A pilot study to demonstrate the feasibility of a harmonized approach for monitoring exposure to engineered and incidental nanoparticles and their potential health effects

The increased production and handling of nanomaterials (NM) have raised concerns regarding the potential of unforeseen health effects, especially among exposed workers. Implementing epidemiological investigations on longitudinal cohorts is key to ensure workers safety. Therein, biomarkers are useful in early detection of exposure-related health alterations.
