Nanoparticles and the olfactory mucous membrane – a new DaNa article on body barriers

4. March 2019

Our inhaled air contains a multitude of molecules, dust particles and biological components (pollen, bacteria, viruses, plant fibres etc.). In addition to gas molecules such as oxygen, which is very important to us, other unwanted things also enter our respiratory tract. The olfactory mucosa is an important barrier here. What role does the olfactory mucosa […]
