Adverse Effects of Engineered Nanoparticles: A Disease-Oriented Approach provides a systematic evaluation of representative engineered nanomaterial (ENM) of high volume production and of high economic importance. Each class of nanomaterials discussed includes information on what scientists, industry, regulatory agencies and the general public need to know about nanosafety. This book, written by leading international experts in nanotoxicology and nanmoedicine, gives a comprehensive view of the health impact of ENM, focusing on their potential adverse effects in exposed workers, consumers and patients. The beneficial applications, both diagnostic and therapeutic, of ENM are also highlighted. This book fills an important need in terms of bridging the gap between experimental findings and human exposure to ENM, and the clinical and pathological consequences of such exposure in the human population.
This book is intended for those directly involved in the field of nanosafety, namely professionals in toxicology, pharmacology, occupational medicine, clinical medicine and nanomedicine.
Secondary markets may include workers concerned with safety in the pharmaceutics, cosmetics and public health industries, as well as policy makers developing regulatory frameworks and nanotechnology industries/enterprises.
