Autophagy and lysosomal dysfunction as emerging mechanisms of nanomaterial toxicity
The mechanism of pleural inflammation by long carbon nanotubes

Aims & scope

Particle and Fibre Toxicology is an open access, peer-reviewed, online multi-disciplinary journal for new scientific data, hypotheses and reviews on the toxicological effects of particles and fibres; it functions as a forum for scientific debate and communication among toxicologists as well as scientists from other disciplines that produce and develop particle and fibre materials, including material sciences, biomaterials and nanomedicine.

Editor's profile

Flemming R. Cassee

Fleming Cassee

Flemming R. Cassee works at the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, Bilthoven, the Netherlands and also has a position as professor in inhalation toxicology at the Institute of Risk Assessment Sciences of the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands. He has been active in toxicology for more than 20 years with a prime interest in the adverse health effects of air pollutants and inhaled nanomaterials.

"The impact of toxicology is highly variable. In air pollution, standards are mostly based on epidemiology, whereas at the workplace or for specific substances, regulations are directed by toxicological information. I think that it remains a challenge to interact with each other. We also need to communicate our findings to those who have to use it. This requires a different language."
