Recognition that the immune system is vulnerable to adverse effects after exposure to xenobiotics led to the discipline of immunotoxicology and the subsequent addition of immunotoxicology testing to regulatory guidelines for toxicity.

Immunotoxic effects can result in immunosuppression, immunostimulation, hypersensitivity, and autoimmunity. The complex nature of the immune system is such that. The book includes extensive discussions on the role of low-dose, chronic immunosuppression in cancer, as well as on specific environmental and occupational immunotoxins and immunotoxic drugs used in hematology, anesthesiology, oncology and transplantation surgery.

Developmental Immunotoxicology - CRC Press Book Despite rapidly increasing interest in developmental immunotoxicology, there is not yet a textbook focused on this hot area of research.

Developmental Immunotoxicology fills the void with overviews of immune system development in experimental animal and human models, and discusses the complex issues.

Principles and Methods of Immunotoxicology. Emphasizing the cornerstones of toxicology-people differ, dose matters, and things change, the book begins with a review of the history of toxicology and followed by an explanation of basic toxicological principles, agents that cause toxicity, target organ toxicity, and toxicological testing.

Immunotoxicology. Humans receive significant ambient daily exposures to multiple environmental contaminants, including by-products of combustion (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) and plastics (phthalates and organotins).

The goal of these studies is to determine the molecular mechanisms by which individual and complex mixtures of contaminants.

The human immune system is constantly exposed to chemical contaminants, whether from food, water or air. Some chemicals directly elicit an immune response, while others indirectly activate or deactivate components within the immune system. Thus when tracking or predicting the effect of a chemical on the immune system, many different pathways and modes of action need to be considered.

INTRODUCTION. Immunity describes the body defence mechanisms against harmful substances. These include bacteria, viruses, parasites and malignant cells.

The word immunity is derived from the Latin immunitas, which means free from disease. The immune response can be divided into three parts; recognition, activation and removal. Book Description. Continuing the tradition set by the first and second editions, each a bestseller in its own right, the third edition of Immunotoxicology and Immunopharmacology provides reviews of environmental agents, updated to reflect the latest information on how these agents influence immune system function and health.
