||Issues in the development of epidemiologic studies of workers exposed to engineered nanoparticles
||Mar. 2009, Vol.51, No.3, p.323-335. Illus. 103 ref.
||Until the hazards and risks of engineered nanoparticles are determined, the technological advances of nanotechnology may be impeded by the societal concerns. Although animal data provide the necessary first step in hazard and risk assessment, epidemiological studies involving exposed workers will also be required. It may be too soon to conduct epidemiological studies but not too soon to identify issues and prepare strategies to address them. Twelve important issues were identified from published scientific literature, the most critical pertaining to particle heterogeneity, temporal factors, exposure characterization, disease endpoints and identification of the study population.
