Immunotoxicogenomics: A Multidisciplinary Approach in Systems Toxicology provides broad coverage to diverse aspects of immunotoxicogenomics. The book covers the major mechanisms and effects of toxic substances on the immune system and on the regulation of gene expression. This includes the aims, opportunities, clinical applications, recent developments, emerging and future trends in immunotoxicogenomics.The book starts off with a discussion of the systemic approach to the study of toxicants. It also looks at the current genomic tools used to assess immunotoxicity and the systems biology methods used in immuno-toxicogenomics. Other topics include genomic expression profiling, the use of gene expression as a tool to understand and predict immunotoxicity, immunotox-icogenomics as a screening tool, and the assessment and analysis of Immunotoxicogenomics data. Future trends round off the discussion in the book. Immunotoxicogenomics: A Multidisciplinary Approach in Systems Toxicology provides a collaborative multidisciplinary approach for researchers in the fields of toxicology, genetics, and immunology and others engaged in the study on the effects of toxic substances on immune responses.
