Dahl - Part 4: Disposition of Inhaled Material Chapter 8 Deposition and Clearance of Inhaled Particles Richard B. Schlesinger Chapter 9 Pulmonary Retention of Particles and Fibers: Biokinetics and effects of Exposure Concentrations M.B. Snipes Chapter 10 Regional Dosimetry of Inhaled Reactive Gases Frederick J. Miller and Julia S. Kimbell Chapter 11 Factors Modifying the Disposition of Inhaled Organic Compounds James A. Bond and Michele A. Medinsky Recent developments have provided new data on the subject of inhalation toxicology, requiring an update of the previous edition of this popular text. Like the first, this second edition explains the basic concepts and quantitative approaches in inhalation toxicology, and it gives a comprehensive treatment of evaluations of respiratory responses to inhaled particles and gases. The author here explores new understanding of the role of cytokines in pulmonary inflammation and risk assessment. Immunologists, oncologists, respiratory specialists and students in those fields will find Concepts In Inhalation Toxicology to be essential to their practice.
