About this book

Introduction

This book offers a collection of the latest clinical and research findings related to allergies, one of the most frequently treated conditions in occupational medicine. The chapters not only cover asthma but also elaborate on contact dermatitis, rhinitis, and other allergic conditions, providing readers with a comprehensive overview of the substances disrupting autoimmunity and their effects on the human body. Allergy and Immunotoxicology in Occupational Health is a valuable resource for professionals and researchers in the occupational health sector, who will discover novel insights into immune effects, providing a foundation for future considerations of the health impairments caused by environmental and occupational exposure to these substances.

Reviews

“The book is generally well laid out, thought provoking and will be appealing to scientists and researchers with interests in these specific areas. It is best regarded as a useful reference work.” (David Fishwick, Occupational Medicine, Vol. 70 (2), March, 2020)

“This book is a collection of clinical and research findings related to allergies, a commonly treated condition. … A review of author affiliations sheds light on likely readers: those in hygiene, dermatology, biofunctional chemistry, immunotoxicology, occupational medicine, and others. It will likely be read by professionals and researchers in the occupational health sector, too. … The editors have met the challenge by insisting on the compilation of about 130 pages of densely referenced material pertinent to immunological toxicology.” (J. Thomas Pierce, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2017)
