    Abstract
    The systemic influence of iron oxide nanoparticles on the elemental homeostasis of key organs was examined in male rats. In tissues taken at different intervals from nanoparticles injection, the dynamics of elemental changes was analyzed. The organ metallome was studied using total reflection X-ray fluorescence. The obtained data were processed with advanced cluster and discriminant analyses-to classify the tissues according to their organs of origin and to distinguish accurately the nanoparticle-treated and normal rats. Additionally, in the case of liver and heart, it was...
