  • RE: Nanoparticles and Nanopathology
    • Sergio Stagnaro, Director, Quantum Biophysical Semeiotic Research Laboratory

    Over the years, it has become clear that particles with very low sizes (especially less than 100 nm) are more significant health-wise than larger particles, since they have been shown to induce far more severe effects. In 2001, Montanari and Gatti coined a new word: nanopathology, meaning by that the collection of pathologies due to micro- and nanoparticles. At that time, this was a void concept, since a comparatively small number of pathologies were recognized worldwide as triggered by particulate matter. Silica particles and asbestos fibres can induce lung diseases as silicosis and asbestosis. The inhalation of dust containing particles of quartz or fibres of a silicate can also induce lethal pathologies of the lungs.
    In my ongoing clinical research, I have discovered and jet described a reliable method, that allows to bedside recognize nanoparticles localized in any biological system, including CNS, by means of a sign, I termed Montanari-Gatti's Sign, classic and variant (2-4). This sign is enormously intense in individuals involved by Constitution-Dependent, Inherited Real Risks, e.g., of T2DM, CVD, Cancer, Osteoporosis (5-8).
