Microplastics & Health


  • What effects do environmental small plastic particles have on epithelial integrity in lung or intestines?
  • Which particles are absorbed and what is their fate and possible effect on the body?
  • What are release kinetics of toxic chemicals from environmental small plastic particles inside the gastrointestinal tract, lungs and/or tissues?
  • How does the immune system deal with environmental small plastic particles? How do relevant plastic bound chemicals and pathogens influence these processes?
  • Which organs are most likely exposed to small plastic particles if and once the particles are absorbed and what are cellular effects in those organs?
