This edited volume discusses the short-term inhalation study (STIS) and intratracheal administration, the two major in vivo inhalation-toxicity screening methods, which play an important role in efficient hazard evaluation. It also provides a general overview of the inhalation toxicity of nanomaterials and related issues. For each screening method, it provides up-to-date information on the test procedures, interpretation of the test results, useful applications, and related technologies. In view of the increasing variety of nanomaterials in practical use, the book offers a basis for building a framework for grouping and read-across assessments of nanomaterials.
With contributions by academic and industrial experts, In vivo Inhalation Toxicity Screening Methods for Manufactured Nanomaterials is a pragmatic reference resource for readers who are responsible for assessing the safety of nanomaterials in R&D and business, as well as researchers.
