Overview

Recent developments have provided new data on the subject of inhalation toxicology, requiring an update of the previous edition of this popular text. Like the first, this second edition explains the basic concepts and quantitative approaches in inhalation toxicology, and it gives a comprehensive treatment of evaluations of respiratory responses to inhaled particles and gases. The author here explores new understanding of the role of cytokines in pulmonary inflammation and risk assessment. Immunologists, oncologists, respiratory specialists and students in those fields will find Concepts In Inhalation Toxicology to be essential to their practice.

Incl. inhalation exposure systems/generation & characterization of gases & vapors/risk assessments, etc.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text that presents the key concepts and special nuances in the field of inhalation toxicology, for scientists who conduct, manage, evaluate, or interpret research work in the field. The text is particularly directed to two groups: those scientists without previous experience in inhalation toxicology who are planning to initiate work in their own laboratories; and the increasing number of scientists, engineers, and other analysts who are involved in risk assessment. This updated edition (first was 1989) incorporates the latest developments in the field. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
