Beschreibung zu "Molecular Immunotoxicology"  (Buch)

A systematic mechanism-based survey of molecular immunotoxicology that can be directly applied to investigating and predicting the immunotoxicity of drugs, chemicals, and environmental contaminants.

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.

Emanuela Corsini is associate professor of Toxicology at the School of Pharmacy of the University of Milan (Italy), where she heads the Laboratory of Immunotoxicology and Immunopharmacology. She obtained her PhD in Food and Environmental Toxicology in 1993 at the University of Milan. Dr. Corsini's research program encompasses distinct areas of immunotoxicology, including the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of action of immunotoxic/immunomodulatory compounds on both innate and adaptive immunity. She is active in numerous scientific and professional organizations, serves on several editorial boards of Toxicology journals. From 2009-2013 she was Member of EUROTOX Education Sub Committee, from 2005-2011 she was the Chair of the Immunotoxicology and Chemical Specialty Section at EUROTOX, and from 2010 she is one of the Director of the IUTOX Executive Committee. Henk van Loveren did his PhD (tumor immunology) at Utrecht University in 1981 and was post-doctoral fellow (immunology) at Yale University, New Haven CT, USA in 1982. Since 1984, he is at the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment in Bilthoven, the Netherlands, where he has run the Immunotoxicology program and is now Senior Scientific Advisor to the Centre of Health Protection. In addition, he is also Professor of Immunotoxicology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. His research has been devoted to the development of immunotoxicity testing, being performed in cell systems, in laboratory animals and clinical settings. Recent developments are the implementation of toxicogenomics in immunotoxicity testing. He has been member of several advisory committees, in addition to being director of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Immunotoxicology and Allergic Hypersensitivity. Prof. van Loveren was one of the founders of the Immunotoxicology and Chemical Specialty Section at EUROTOX and served as its president from 2000-2003. For his achievements, he got the Vos Career Achievement Award Immunotoxicology of the American Society of Toxicology in 2008, and the Merit Award 2010 of the European Federation of Toxicology Societies.
