Meanwhile the E-book with all contributions to the London Particles & health meeting in 2021 are now online. Please go to the following link: https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/20810/particles-and-health-2021-an-international-conference-addressing-issues-in-science-and-regulation
It took a while but finally our paper went online in Toxicology Letters. The paper emerged out of the SAS4REACH consortium in which we discussed the pathology outcome of 14 different particles after subchronic inhalation. The fact that inflammation occurs after most particle exposures is not new, and frustrating classification. However, [...]
As a toxicology expert I support environmental issues. Since a number of years I help concerned inhabitants of villages near Maastricht Aachen Airport (MAA). A number of people have been able to contract Sensornet to do measurements of ultrafine particles during 3 months in 2022. The results have been digested into [...]
A few months ago the E-book with all contributions to the London Particles & Health meeting in 2021 is now published online. Please go to the following link: https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/20810/particles-and-health-2021-an-international-conference-addressing-issues-in-science-and-regulation
On June 1st and 2nd the annual meeting of MOMENTUM took place in Scheveningen (NL). A consortium in which apart from basic research into effects of model and real-life particles, also solution sets are being explored. Nanoconsult is strongly involved in the solution set of Safe by (Bio)degradation and has contributed to [...]
Looking forward to speak in Brussels on december 5th during the informal face-to-face meeting between CEFIC and representatives of the EU to discuss options for particle classification. My presentation will focus on a new way to look at the inflammatory response.
Yesterday breaking news on the former classification of TiO2 particles as a carcinogen was published. The European court annuls the former classification of TiO2 as a carcinogenic substance by inhalation in certain powder forms. Common sense seem to return and Nanoconsult praises the persistence of those who have continued debating this. Our [...]
If you are interested in the papers from the Particles & Health Conference that was held in October 2021 in London please go to the Frontiers website or have a look at the summary paper of session 2 on Inflammation as a key-outcome Pathway.
Happy to announce that the paper I wrote with Stephanie Wright (King's College, London, UK) will soon be published in Frontiers. It is an example of connecting different worlds in an effort to learn and accelerate robust interventions toward inhaled microplastics. Nanoconsult: connecting solutions!
On September 15, 2021, the Dutch Health Council released itsAdvies-Risicos-van-ultrafijnstof-in-de-buitenlucht The advisory report was prepared by the temporary Ultrafine Dust Committee. The headline of the press release is: 'Reduce ultrafine dust emissions to protect health'. The intro: 'There is increasing evidence that ultrafine dust can be harmful to health. Therefore, the Health Council [...]
