Intended as an extension, rather than a revision, of the previous editions, Toxicology of the Lung, Fourth Edition provides the most up-to-date treatment of inhalation toxicology that treats the subject from a target organ perspective. Seventeen of the eighteen chapters are contributed by entirely new authors, leading international authorities in their respective specialties. As with the previous editions, this book presents the latest advances in the understanding of how the lung responds to airborne contaminants. It discusses the assessment of nanomaterials, pulmonary administration of new therapeutics, health effects of inhaled particulate matter from diesel exhaust, and respiratory genomics.
