A Review of In Vivo Hepatotoxicity Induced by Quantum Dots
Abstract: Quantum dots (QDs) are being considered to be of high potential value in research, technology and biomedicine. Their unique physico-chemical properties, small particle size and excellent fluorescent properties make them useful in biomedical applications. A great number of studies have shown that QDs are distributed to many secondary organs, liver being the main reservoir. In vivo hepatotoxicity studies show significant discrepancies in results and this review highlights more need of research to elucidate on toxicity mechanisms and need for unifying reliable and realistic reports.
