Contents Notes
"This single-source reference presents current knowledge of the mechanisms of airway injury and repair in response to environmental factors such as chemicals, infectious agents, pollution, mechanical irritants, and toxic agents." "Containing authoritative contributions from over 35 internationally acclaimed experts in their respective fields, Environmental Impact on the Airways examines the molecular biology, immunology, toxicology, and pathology of repair processes in the airways...discusses the environmental injuries created by specific chemical toxicants and infectious agents...analyzes airway defense mechanisms...summarizes the morphological characteristics of the conducting airways...describes the general repair capabilities of cell matrix tissue and cells of the airways, particularly of the epithelium...elucidates how repair processes may lead to airway diseases...considers different immune responses, cellular and subcellular abnormalities, and the form and distribution of sequelae...and more."--BOOK JACKET.
