About this book

This book covers the latest information related to understanding immune responses to engineered nanomaterials (ENMs). Many ENMs used in both the consumer and biomedical fields have been reported to elicit adverse immune responses ranging from innate immune responses such as complement activation to changes in adaptive immunity that influence pathogen responses and promote disease states such as asthma. Interaction of Nanomaterials with the Immune System covers the most up to date information on our understanding of immune responses to ENMs across a wide range of topics including innate immunity, allergic immune responses, adaptive provides the reader with (1) up to date understanding of immune responses to ENMs; (2) current testing methods; and (3) appropriate models including alternative testing strategies for evaluating immunotoxicity of ENMs.   

About the authors

James C. Bonner is Professor of Toxicology at North Carolina State University. His research focuses on the fibroproliferative effects of nanomaterials in the lung, particularly in susceptible disease models. 
Jared M. Brown is Professor of Toxicology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. His research focuses on allergic immune responses to nanomaterials and their application in medicine.
