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.

Review quote

"This book is clearly presented with chapters by well-renowned contribution authors. There are clear images throughout which have been used in particular effect to simplify and summarise models being discussed...Overall this is a useful book which will be of particular interest to students or researchers new to the field of nanotoxicology."--BTS Winter 2012, Issue 41 page 33
