The nanoparticles (NP) are defined as particles whose size is no greater than 100 nanometers. However, their impact on health remains little evaluated.
Placental transfer of NP has been proven in many studies in vitro and in vivo in animals, and toxicity in the fetus has been studied in many animals. The investigators seem interesting at first to establish the mineralogical load in the amniotic fluid in humans.
The analysis will be done on 100 amniotic fluid samples and 100 blood samples. Particle size analysis will be performed by a technique of dynamic light scattering, which permits the distribution by volume or by number of NP according to their size. Parallel to the different chemical species present in the sample must be measured by atomic emission spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma.
The results of this study will be useful for further studies on the fetal toxicity of NP in humans.

Nanometer-sized particles that are nanoscale in three dimensions. They include nanocrystaline materials; NANOCAPSULES; METAL NANOPARTICLES; DENDRIMERS, and QUANTUM DOTS. The uses of nanoparticles include DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS and cancer targeting and imaging.
Nanoparticles produced from metals whose uses include biosensors, optics, and catalysts. In biomedical applications the particles frequently involve the noble metals, especially gold and silver.
Spontaneous loss of INTRAUTERINE DEVICES from the UTERUS.
A layer of protein coating adsorbed by NANOPARTICLES upon entry into PLASMA or other protein-containing biological fluids, which affects how nanoparticles are internalized by cells and cleared from the body.
The quantity of measurable virus in a body fluid. Change in viral load, measured in plasma, is sometimes used as a SURROGATE MARKER in disease progression.
