  Abstract  
  In this work we reviewed recent findings about the toxicity of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) in in vitro and in vivo experiments. We show that, beyond the wide variability of the experimental conditions (including physical/chemical AuNPs characteristics) and a slight discrepancy of some published results, as-synthesized (naked) AuNPs are significantly toxic both in vitro and in vivo, while appropriate coating may partially prevent their harmful effects.
