AN INNOVATIVE ANALYTICAL PLATFORM TO INVESTIGATE THE EFFECT AND TOXICITY OF MICRO AND NANO PLASTICS COMBINED WITH ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINANTS ON THE RISK OF ALLERGIC DISEASE IN PRECLINICAL AND CLINICAL

Project description

Microplastic pollution under the microscope

The rise in plastic pollution of the ocean is visible, but some plastics are so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye. At the sub-five-millimetre down to nanometre scale, these tiny plastics are also entering the environment and posing a huge concern for biota and human health. The EU-funded Imptox project will develop an analytical platform to investigate the effect and toxicity of micro- and nanoplastic particles (MNPs) combined with environmental contaminants on the risk of allergic disease in preclinical and clinical studies. The platform will be designed to find suitable analytical approaches for determining the extent of the problem. Findings will lead to novel tools for MNP detection and increased awareness of disease risk.
