Novel In Vitro Exposure Techniques for Toxicity Testing and Biomonitoring of Airborne Contaminants

Chapter


Abstract


  • Exposure to occupational and environmental airborne contaminants is a major

    contributor to human health problems. The inhalation of gases, vapors, solid and

    1iquid aerosols, and also mixtures of these, can cause a wide range of adverse

    health effects, ranging from simple irritation to systemic diseases. Despite

    significant achievements in the risk assessment of chemicals, the toxicological

    database, particular1y for airborne contaminants, remains limited. Therefore,

    as a part of preventive strategies that can assist in reducing the effects of toxic

    chemicals, it is critical to develop new alternative approaches that are both

    informative and time-/cost-efficient to identify the potential hazards of airborne

    chemicals.
