The effects of different nanoparticles on the viability and function of human endothelial cell functions were investigated. Assays that examined the cytotoxic proliferative effects on nanopartilces were performed depending on particle type. Low, non-cytotoxic Co-particle concentration led to changes of the in vitro-capillary phenotype. It was found that if a pro-inflammatory stimulation of EC occurred in vivo, a chronic inflammation could be a possible consequence. An impairment of angiogenic capacity in vivo could lead to an impariment of wound healing.
