Aluminum in Biology and Medicine

Overview

Prominent contributors address issues regarding the toxicity of aluminum which causes an encephalopathy in renal dialysis patients and is also known to damage animals and plants via acid rain. Examines the chemistry and biology of aluminum compounds focusing on the evidence for and against aluminum's role in Alzheimer's disease.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The possible role of aluminum in the etiology of Alzheimer's disease is perhaps the most pressing concern informing the 16 papers from an international symposium in London, November 1991. Among the topics are the chemistry and biology of aluminum compounds as related to their known toxicity, the distribution of aluminum compounds in the environment, their absorption and transport, and their intracellular effects. Alzheimer's disease is addressed from the perspectives of epidemiology, recent molecular biological studies, the possible role of silicon in counteracting the toxicity, and the connection with dementia.
