    Claudio Procaccini, Giuseppe Matarese, in Mechanisms and Manifestations of Obesity in Lung Disease, Immunometabolism of Pulmonary Fibrosis. Pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic progressive interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, associated with a poor prognosis and often culminates in lung transplantation or death from respiratory failure [83].

Brings together the accomplishments and advancements in concepts, approaches, and procedures used to evaluate the risks associated with airborne contaminants.

This book describes how and why the lung and respiratory system respond as they do to toxicants and provides an understanding of human health risks associated with chemical exposure. TOXICOLOGY OF THE LUNG: Metabolism: The major metabolic pathways can be divided into the phase I enzymes (cytochrome P isoenzymes, flavin.

Inhalation toxicology refers to the route of exposure, whereas respiratory toxicology refers to target organ toxicity. Lung tissue can be injured directly or secondarily by metabolic products from organic compounds. However, the most important effect of many toxic inhalants is to place an undue oxidative burden on the lungs.

As a source of information on the comparative biology of the mammalian lung it is is no doubt that this is an excellent book. Toxicology: What Everyone Should Know is an essential reference for anyone looking for an entry into this fascinating field of innovative book describes important discoveries in toxicology through the ages, explores their historical and sociological impacts, and shows how they still influence recent, state-of-the-art developments.

Some volumes in the series have established themselves as standard works: the volume on Toxicology of the lung is in its third edition. This volume on the pancreas is a first : R L Maynard. A full range of scientific evidence, extending from the molecular level to whole populations, supports the conclusion that secondhand smoke causes disease.

The scope of this evidence is enormous, and encompasses not only the literature on secondhand smoke but also relevant findings on active smoking and on the toxicity of individual tobacco smoke components.

Material presented describes the relationship between toxicology and the lung and ways that the lung is both a target organ for many toxicants and a major port of entry into the body, providing toxicants the opportunity to exert toxic effects in other : Cham E.

Dallas. The book then reviews the evergrowing repertoire of techniques that can be used to measure the responses elicited by the exposure.

Quantitative and qualitative anatomical, physiological, and biochemical strategies are discussed in detail.

We believe that the toxicology of inhaled materials is an important and timely topic for several'reasons. The first descriptions of dust-related occupational lung disease. The first mentions of a link between exposure to dust particles and lung disease are to be found in the 15 th and 16 th centuries.

Within a few years of the invention of the printing press, Georgius Agricola wrote about the theory and practice of metal mining and refining in ‘On the nature of minerals’ (De re metallica Cited by: Lung Toxicity Lung toxicity can be minimized, however, by ensuring the volume of lung tissue receiving 20 Gy or more is less than 7% and the mean lung dose is less than Gy From: IASLC Thoracic Oncology (Second Edition), Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) is a solid lung lesion of nonfunctioning pulmonary tissue, a supernumerary lobe of the lung, which lacks connection to the tracheobronchial tree and receives its blood supply from an aberrant systemic feeding artery, originating commonly from the descending aorta.

Pulmonary toxicity is the medical name for side effects on the lungs. Although most cases of pulmonary toxicity in medicine are due to side effects of medicinal drugs, many cases can be due to side effects of radiation (radiotherapy). Other (non-medical) causes of pulmonary toxicity can be chemical compounds and airborne particulate matter.

R.K. Wolff, M.A. Dorato, in Comprehensive Toxicology, Dose measurements. Several different approaches have been used to determine lung burdens of test agents and to measure values in lung tissues using chemical assays, radiolabel methods, and inferences from blood level measurements.

Measurements of material deposited in the lung provide the most direct determination of. This chapter reviews the toxic responses of the respiratory system. Historically, respiratory toxicology is a keystone of medicine, dating back to Hippocrates. In his medical thesis On Airs, Waters, and Places, Hippocrates recommended that physicians evaluate local atmospheres to discover the causes of diseases (Adams, ).

Lung cancer is a complex and heterogeneous disease, not only at the biochemical level (genes, proteins, metabolites) but also at the tissue, organism, and population levels. 4 There are many early detection biomarkers for lung cancer, including both tissue- and biofluid-based biomarkers such as airway epithelium, sputum, blood, and exhaled breath.

Lund has been a full member of SOT sinceis currently a member of the Lone Star Society of Toxicology (LSSOT), where she is currently serving as Vice President, in addition to the Cardiovascular Specialty Section (CVSS), and the Inhalation and Respiratory Specialty Section (IRSS), where she served as Secretary/Treasurer from and.

Ultrafine particles made of low-solubility, low-toxicity materials are more inflammogenic in the rat lung than fine respirable, particles made from the same material. Ultrafine particles can cause inflammation via processes independent of the release of transition metals, as shown by the fact that soluble products from ultrafine carbon black Cited by: Toxicology is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes only the highest quality original scientific research and critical reviews describing hypothesis-based investigations into mechanisms of toxicity associated with exposures to xenobiotic chemicals, particularly as it relates to human health.
