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.

  • Multi-authored book written by leading US and European experts on nanotoxicology and nanomedicine
  • Discusses the health implications and a clinical translation of experimental data in this area
  • Takes a schematic, non-exhaustive approach to summarize the most important research data in this field
  • Includes a glossary, with a brief explanation of the term and with a reference to where the term or phrase has been used will be included within the book

Adverse Effects of Engineered Nanomaterials: Exposure, Toxicology, and Impact on Human Health

Edited by Bengt Fadeel, Antonio Pietroiusti and Anna Shvedova

Adverse Effects of Engineered Nanomaterials: Exposure, Toxicology, and Impact on Human Health is a critical and authoritative resource that provides an orientation for toxicologists, pharmacologists, and clinicians, as well as regulators and policymakers, and others directly involved in nanosafety. This book, written by leading international experts in nanotoxicology and nanomedicine, gives a comprehensive view of the health impact of engineered nanomaterials (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. By reviewing and translating current research, this essential reference bridges the gap between experimental findings on toxicological effects of ENM and occupational and environmental exposure to ENM, and the clinico-pathological consequences of such exposure in the human population.

Key Features:

  • Contains information on occupational exposure assessment and biomonitoring of exposure and adverse health effects of ENM
  • Provides a critical discussion of commonly used in vitro and in vivo toxicity tests and of computational approaches to nanosafety
  • Offers a systematic evaluation of the human organs and organ systems which may be affected by exposure to ENM
  • Highlights current and future biomedical applications of nanoparticles in relation to nanosafety
  • Provides global, clinical, occupational, and regulatory perspectives given the backgrounds of the well-renowned contributing authors and their expertise in health and safety issues related to ENM
