Respiratory Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Inhalation Toxicology
Second edition
edited by Harry Salem

Features of Inhalation Toxicology, Second Edition:

  • Focuses on the methods, measurements, and mechanisms of inhalation toxicology
  • Includes coverage of the inhalation of biological agents
  • Discusses the importance of developing chemical exposure numbers for emergency response planning purposes
  • Highlights the use of new techniques such as toxicokinetic models, genomics, and proteomics
  • Features coverage of in vivo studies and animal models, therapeutics, and chemicals
  • Examines the data, methods, models, and guidelines used in health risk assessment to determine inhalation endpoints

Inhalation Toxicology, Second Edition details the methods and materials used in the theoretical and applied aspects of inhalation toxicology. Emphasis is placed on the relationship between the respiratory system and toxicology of inhaled substances and the examination of methods and measurements for improving the understanding of the basic mechanisms of effects.
