Nanotubes Linked to Mesothelioma in New Study

With growing concern about the health effects of nanotechnology, a new study conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has come out, reinforcing those concerns. The study was released to the public on March 23, showing the results of testing with multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) as they interact in mice.

After being introduced to the MWCNTs, lab mice developed pulmonary health issues like inflammation and fibrosis of the lungs. In addition, the MWCNTs found their way into the pleura, or lining of the lungs. This shows the MWCNTs working in a very similar fashion to asbestos, allowing for the hypothesis that exposure could lead to mesothelioma over time.
