Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A selection of topics designed to introduce immunologists to the rapidly growing field of immunotoxicology, focusing on the effect environmental and occupational chemicals have on the immune system, and to familiarize them with the microbiological principles of infection and host resistance. Emphasizes clinical and epidemiological data, rather than laboratory experiments with animals models (as most such studies do), and includes such aspects as food and drug intolerance, cigarette smoking, and occupational asthma.
