The biological fate of engineered nanoparticles (NPs) in physiological media is discussed. The four color-labeled scenarios illustrate (green) potential adverse effects following protein adsorption, (orange) functionalization of NPs with cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) and antibodies (active targeting), (yellow) the possibility of ‘passivating’ NPs with suitable coatings, (blue) and adverse effects such as ‘NP dissolution’ and reactive oxygen species generation.
