Testing approaches to assess immunotoxicity of chemicals


Direct toxicity of chemicals for components of the immune system may lead to altered host defence to infectious diseases. For this reason, it is important to screen for potential immunotoxicity. Screening can be best performed within the context of general toxicity screening, such as short term toxicity tests, subchronic toxicity testing, chronic toxicity… (More)
