||This article discusses the toxicology of nanoparticles and examines what are or could be the main factors influencing their toxicity, i.e. the exposure-dependent factors, factors related to the exposed subjects and factors affecting the intrinsic toxicity, including chemical composition and solubility of nanoparticles as well as their size, surface, shape, structure and state of agglomeration. The main routes of entry are presented, as well as the mechanisms of transport within the body and of elimination. A schematic of the biokinetics of nanometric-sized particles is also presented.
