Background/Aim: Use of nanomaterials in healthcare applications increases in parallel to technological developments. It is frequently utilized in diagnostic procedures, medications and thera-peutic implementations. Nanomaterials take place among key components of medical implants, which might be responsible for certain toxic effects on human health at nano-level. In this review, nanotoxicological effects, toxicity determination of nanobiomaterials used in human body and their effects on human health are discussed.
