    Mammalian Toxicology surveys chemical agents and examines how such chemicals impact on human health, emphasizing the importance in minimizing environmental exposure to chemical and physical hazards in our homes, communities and workplaces through such media as contaminated water, soil and air. Starting with the basic principles on a wide range of toxic Author: Mohamed Abou-Donia. Recognition by regulatory agencies that the immune system is an important, as well as sensitive, target organ for chemical- and drug-induced toxicity is another indication of the growth of this subdiscipline of toxicology.

Reeves WH, et al. “Induction of autoimmunity by pristane and other naturally-occurring hydrocarbons.”. Immunotoxicology (sometimes abbreviated as ITOX) is the study of the toxicity of foreign substances called xenobiotics and their effects on the immune system. Some toxic agents that are known to alter the immune system include: industrial chemicals, heavy metals, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, drugs, ultraviolet radiation, air pollutants and some biological materials.

Susceptibility to most autoimmune diseases is dependent on polygenic inheritance, environmental factors, and poorly defined stochastic events.

One of the significant challenges facing autoimmune disease research is in identifying the specific events that trigger loss of tolerance and autoimmunity.

About this book This book provides a detailed overview of B-cell directed therapies in patients with rheumatic and systemic autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjögren syndrome, ANCA-associated vasculitis and cryoglobulinemia.

Immunotoxicology is a subdiscipline of toxicology that focuses on unintended modulation of the immune system. Effects that may occur include immunosuppression, immunostimulation, hypersensitivity, or autoimmunity, which may result in outcomes such as increased incidences of infectious diseases or neoplastic diseases, allergy/asthma, or.

The Journal of Autoimmunity is a parent journal of the Journal of Translational Autoimmunity. The Journal of Autoimmunity publishes papers related to the diverse aspects of autoimmunity: the mechanism of self-recognition, regulation of autoimmune responses, experimental autoimmune diseases, diagnostic autoantibody tests, and the epidemiology.

Autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system attacks self-molecules as a result of a breakdown of immunologic tolerance to autoreactive immune cells. Many autoimmune disorders have been strongly associated with genetic, infectious, and/or environmental predisposing by: Kammüller ME, Bloksma, N, Seinen W () Immune disregulation induced by drugs and chemicals.

However, genetics don’t always set our fate in stone. Environmental factors, including drugs, toxins, and heavy metals have been shown to induce autoimmune disease. In this article we’re going to focus on the role of heavy.A healthy immune system defends the body against disease and infection.

But if the immune system malfunctions, it mistakenly attacks healthy cells, tissues, and organs. Called autoimmune disease, these attacks can affect any part of the body, weakening bodily function and even turning life-threatening.
