Handbook of Nanosafety

Measurement, Exposure and Toxicology

 

Academic Press, 2014.

ISBNs 9780124166042

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Handbook of Nanosafety: Measurement, Exposure and Toxicology, written by leading international experts in nanosafety, provides a comprehensive understanding of engineered nanomaterials (ENM), current international nanosafety regulation, and how ENM can be safely handled in the workplace.

Increasingly, the importance of safety needs to be considered when promoting the use of novel technologies like ENM. With its use of case studies and exposure scenarios, Handbook of Nanosafety demonstrates techniques to assess exposure and risks and how these assessments can be applied to improve workers' safety. Topics covered include the effects of ENM on human health, characterization of ENM, aerosol dynamics and measurement, exposure and risk assessment, and safe handling of ENM.

Based on outcomes from the NANODEVICE initiative, this is an essential resource for those who need to apply current nanotoxicological thinking in the workplace and anyone who advises on nanosafety, such as professionals in toxicology, occupational safety and risk assessment.

  • Multi-authored book, written by leading researchers in the field of nanotoxicology and nanosafety
  • Features state-of-the-art physical and chemical characterization of engineered nanomaterials (ENM)
  • Develops strategies for exposure assessment, risk assessment and risk management
  • Includes practical case studies and exposure scenarios to demonstrate how you can safely use ENM in the workplace

Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals

 

4th ed. Academic Press, 2015.

ISBNs 9780444594532

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals, Fourth Edition bridges the gap between established knowledgebase and new advances in metal toxicology to provide one essential reference for all those involved in the field. This book provides comprehensive coverage of basic toxicological data, emphasizing toxic effects primarily in humans, but also those of animals and biological systems in vitro. The fourth edition also contains several new chapters on important topics such as nanotoxicology, metals in prosthetics and dental implants, gene-environment interaction, neurotoxicology, metals in food, renal, cardiovascular, and diabetes effects of metal exposures and more.

Volume I covers “General Considerations” and Volume II is devoted to “Specific Metals.” A multidisciplinary resource with contributions from internationally-recognized experts, the fourth edition of the Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals is a prominent and indispensable reference for toxicologists, physicians, pharmacologists, engineers, and all those involved in the toxicity of metals.

  • Contains 61 peer reviewed chapters dealing with the effects of metallic elements and their compounds on biological systems
  • Includes information on sources, transport and transformation of metals in the environment and on certain aspects of the ecological effects of metals to provide a basis for better understanding of the potential for adverse effects on human health
  • Covers the toxicology of metallic nanomaterials in a new comprehensive chapter
  • Metal toxicology in developing countries is dealt with in another new chapter emphasizing the adverse effects on human health by the inadequate handling of "ewaste”
  • Other new chapters in the 4th edition include:  Toxic metals in food; Toxicity of metals released from medical devices; Gene-environment interactions; Neurotoxicology of metals; Cardiovascular disease; Renal effects of exposure to metals; Gold and gold mining; Iridium; Lanthanum; Lithium and Rhodium

History of Toxicology and Environmental Health

 

Academic Press, 2014.

ISBNs 9780128000458

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Toxicology in Antiquity is the first in a series of short format works covering key accomplishments, scientists, and events in the broad field of toxicology, including environmental health and chemical safety. This first volume sets the tone for the series and starts at the very beginning, historically speaking, with a look at toxicology in ancient times. The book explains that before scientific research methods were developed, toxicology thrived as a very practical discipline. People living in ancient civilizations readily learned to distinguish safe substances from hazardous ones, how to avoid these hazardous substances, and how to use them to inflict harm on enemies. It also describes scholars who compiled compendia of toxic agents.

  • Provides the historical background for understanding modern toxicology
  • Illustrates the ways ancient civilizations learned to distinguish safe from hazardous substances, how to avoid the hazardous substances and how to use them against enemies
  • Details scholars who compiled compendia of toxic agents

Human Toxicology of Chemical Mixtures

Toxic consequences Beyond the impact of One-Component Product and Environmental Exposures

 

William Andrew Publishing, 2008.

ISBNs 9780815515890

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): This book considers how exposure to toxic mixtures affects the different physiological systems and organs, including the respiratory, cardiovascular, immunological, musculoskeletal, nervous and reproductive systems, as well as the various organs, including the kidneys, liver and skin.

The author evaluates various sources of exposure, including air, water, and soil pollution; in utero exposure; chemicals contained in foods, cosmetics, and domestic cleaning products; adhesives and paints; industrial chemicals; pesticides; electromagnetic radiation; and chemicals ingested or inhaled during the use of alcohol, tobacco and narcotics.

The book also examines the interplay between exposure to these mixtures and the prevalence of various diseases and conditions, including autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), developmental neurotoxicology, multiple chemical sensitivity (MSC), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), Gulf war syndrome, cancer and cancer clusters. The author also discusses how exposure to these mixtures yields the above diseases and conditions in different populations: fetuses, infants, pre-adolescent children, adolescents and adults.

Finally, the book addresses the profound policy implications for formulation, labeling and use of chemical products, and it proposes more stringent exposure limits and warning requirements in light of the newly recognized toxic effects that are directly attributable to the mixture of toxic lipophilic and hydrophilic chemicals.

* Addresses chemical mixtures, while most literature only deals with single chemicals exposure.
* Explains why certain toxicological effects are observed.
* Discusses diagnosis and treatment of injuries resulting from exposure.
* Explores consequences of effects on product formulation, use, handling and required warnings.
* Provides guidelines for safer development of personal care, cosmetic, industrial and consumer use products.
