By Harry Salem, Sidney A. Katz

The lungs supply an important chance for the advent of either healing and poisonous chemical substances into the human physique. In occupational and household environments, detrimental chemical compounds can input the physique throughout the lungs through gases, aerosols, and particulates from ordinary and anthropogenic assets. totally up-to-date with new study and discoveries because the final variation, Inhalation Toxicology, 3rd Edition provides contributions from the world over well-known scientists within the educational, commercial/industrial, and governmental sectors. a realistic source for practising execs and scholars, the ebook comprehensively examines the connection among the breathing approach and the toxicology of inhaled ingredients.

Topics include:

  • Regulatory points of publicity and testing
  • Testing gear and procedures
  • Respiratory hypersensitive reaction and inflammation of the respiration tract
  • Risk assessment
  • Toxicology concept
  • Toxicology modeling
  • Toxic results of a few person toxicants

New issues during this 3rd variation contain assortment and characterization of airborne particulate subject, the inhalation toxicology of asbestos fibers and nanoparticles, and the improvement of lung-on-a-chip know-how for predicting in vivo responses. every one bankruptcy concludes with thought-provoking questions and solutions, improving the book’s academic software.
