There is limited information available on the uptake of synthetically produced nanozeolites via the lung.


In cell culture experiments with A549 lung epithelial cells, zeolite nanoparticles neither affected cellular growth nor triggered toxic effects. Only very high concentrations of nanozeolites were able to cause the formation of reactive oxygen species as well as alter the metabolic activity of the cells [1].
