Impact du colorant alimentaire E171 et de nanoparticules de dioxyde de titane sur des modèles cellulaires, in vitro, d'épithélium intestinal Abstract : Micro-sized titanium dioxide (TiO2) particles are used for years by industrials for their attractive physical and chemical properties. The use of TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) is also constantly increasing, because the nanometric size gives new interesting properties to particles which industrials are looking for. In some daily-life products including paints, plastics, paper, medicines and food, micro-sized TiO2 particles are used as a pigment for their opacifying and whitening capacities. The use of TiO2 as a food additive, i.e. E171 in the EU, has been authorized in most countries since the 60ies, without any established acceptable daily intake, because of their low toxicity and intestinal absorption. However, it was recently shown that E171 can contain up to 43% of particles with diameter ranging from 1 to 100 nm, i.e.

Food-grade TiO2 impairs intestinal and systemic immune ... Titanium dioxide, which is manufactured as a food ingredient (and referred to as E171), is ingested daily as mixed nano- and submicron-sized particles in the human diet1. While recent reports based on NP models show that TiO2-NPs translocate through the intestinal epithelia, no in vivo study has been carried out to investigate the tissue distribution of food-grade TiO2 particles along the gut and whether the nanoscale fraction of E171 particles presents a specific risk via the oral route. Our study shows that ultrasonicated E171 particles prepared in water before oral administration to rats did not reagglomerate in vivo in the intestinal lumen. Transepithelial passage occurred in the jejunum and the colon after one week of treatment, and the titanium (Ti) reached the liver, exhibiting systemic absorption of E171 as previously reported based on TiO2-NP models13,14,26,27.
List of academic databases and search engines Wikipedia list article This article contains a representative list of notable databases and search engines useful in an academic setting for finding and accessing articles in academic journals, institutional repositories, archives, or other collections of scientific and other articles. Databases and search engines differ substantially in terms of coverage and retrieval qualities. Users need to account for qualities and limitations of databases and search engines, especially those searching systematically for records such as in systematic reviews or meta-analyses. As the distinction between a database and a search engine is unclear for these complex document retrieval systems, see:
Image-to-Image Demo - Affine Layer Interactive Image Translation with pix2pix-tensorflow The pix2pix model works by training on pairs of images such as building facade labels to building facades, and then attempts to generate the corresponding output image from any input image you give it. The idea is straight from the pix2pix paper, which is a good read. facades
