Current state of knowledge on the health effects of engineered nanomaterials in workers
A systematic review of human studies and epidemiological investigations Objectives: The widespread application of nano-enabled products and the increasing likelihood for workplace exposures make understanding engineered nanomaterial (ENM) effects in exposed workers a public and occupational health priority. The aim of this study was to report on the current state of knowledge on possible adverse effects induced by ENM in humans to determine the toxicological profile of each type of ENM and potential biomarkers for early detection of such effects in workers. Methods: A systematic review of human...
IARC Monographs Volume 111: Some Nanomaterials and Some Fibres
This volume of the IARC Monographs contains evaluations of the carcinogenic hazard to humans of fluoro-edenite fibrous amphibole, silicon carbide fibres and whiskers, and carbon nanotubes. None of these agents had been evaluated previously by the Working Group. Source: http://monographs.iarc.fr/ENG/Monographs/vol111/index.php
Occupational Exposure to Carbon Nanotubes and Nanofibers : Current Intelligence Bulletin 65
This NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin (1) reviews the animal and other toxicological data relevant to assessing the potential non-malignant adverse respiratory effects of CNT and CNF, (2) provides a quantitative risk assessment based on animal dose-response data, (3) proposes a recommended exposure limit (REL) of 1 μg/m3 elemental carbon as a respirable mass 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) concentration, and (4) describes strategies for controlling workplace exposures and implementing a medical surveillance program. The NIOSH REL is expected to reduce the risk for pulmonary inflammation...
Filling the Knowledge Gaps for Safe Nanotechnology in the Workplace
A Progress Report from the NIOSH Nanotechnology Research Center, 2004–2011. This 2012 update presents the program accomplishments of the NTRC from its inception in 2004 through 2011. It includes an analysis of the progress made toward accomplishing the goals and objectives of the NIOSH Strategic Plan for Nanotechnology Research and toward addressing the goals and research needs identified in the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) research strategy.

Risks and Control of Nanomaterials
Editorial / Trevor Ogden. In this issue we bring together 12 articles on nanomaterials and approaches to risk control. The issue originated with the conference held in April (2011) by the Institut National de Recherche et de Sécurité (INRS) in Nancy, France, on risks associated with nanoparticles and nanomaterials. Topics included measurement and control process design, occupational toxicology, protection, epidemiology, assessment and management of risk of nanoparticles.
