Evaluation of Cyto- and Genotoxicity of Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) Nanoparticles
(Journal of Polymers and the Environment, 2011-03-01) [Artigo]
This work reports on an analysis of the cyto- and genotoxicity of poly(lactide-co-glycolide) polymer nanoparticles, in an attempt to evaluate their mutagenic effects. Fibroblast (3T3) and human lymphocyte cell cultures ...
Poly(epsilon-caprolactone)nanocapsules as carrier systems for herbicides: Physico-chemical characterization and genotoxicity evaluation
(Journal of Hazardous Materials, 2012-09-15) [Artigo]
The toxicity of herbicides used in agriculture is influenced by their chemical stability, solubility, bioavailability, photodecomposition, and soil sorption. Possible solutions designed to minimize toxicity include the ...
Can atrazine loaded nanocapsules reduce the toxic effects of this herbicide on the fish Prochilodus lineatus? A multibiomarker approach
(Science of The Total Environment, 2019-01-29) [Artigo]
Atrazine (ATZ) is a widely used herbicide that has the potential to contaminate the environment and cause deleterious effects on non-target organisms. Release systems for ATZ have been developed to minimize this contamination, ...
Pyrethrum extract encapsulated in nanoparticles: toxicity studies based on genotoxicity and hematological effects in bullfrog tadpoles
(Environmental Pollution, 2019) [Artigo]
The environment receives a large amount of pesticides annually, about 2.7 kg/ha per year are used in crop production, having a negative impact on the environment and biodiversity, for example, physiological effects on ...
