About this book
Advances in Controlled Clinical Inhalation Studies
represents scientific work presented at the 3rd
International Inhalation Symposium held 1991 in Hannover,
FRG. The symposium covered the new developments in this
field of research. The main pollutants of interest were acid
aerosols, fog, and indoor pollutants, while with regard to
biological effects, an emphasis was placed on
immunotoxicological and biochemical parameters. Tests on
high risk groups were also considered. Initial chapters
describe the outdoor environment as well as indoor air,
measurement and quality - both at home and in the workplace.
Besides methods for clinical inhalation and assessing
personal exposure, new methodologies are particularly
presented. Further chapters focus on the relevance of
clinical data for regulatory decisions.
