There is no direct evidence that copper or cooper oxide particles cross biological barriers.


Several ingestional [1,2] or inhalation [3] studies measured increased level of copper in different organs beyond the barrier tissue. However the analytical method applied is not always able to discriminate between nanoparticulate and ionic form. This is a general problem for (readily) soluble nanoparticles.
