 About the Book 

The first comprehensive reference on immunotoxicology using analyses based on molecular effects rather than on animal models.Following an introduction to immune system pathways and toxicity mechanisms from a systemic perspective, the main part of the book surveys individual molecular mechanisms of important immunotoxicants, from PAHs to biopharmaceuticals, and from receptor-mediated toxicity to nanoparticle toxicity.Taken together, the knowledge presented here provides an up-to-date overview of this hot topic that can be directly applied to the prediction and characterization of immunotoxic effects in drugs, chemicals, and environmental contaminants.
