9780123247513: The Lung: Development, Aging and The Environment

This unique book provides a concise account, written by world authorities in their fields, of how the mammalian lung grows and matures before birth and how the lungs, and their ability to function well, can be affected by the environment and by genetic factors, both before and after birth. It provides an understanding of the basis of some major lung diseases affecting infants and children. The book also deals with how the lung changes with age, and how the process of lung aging can be affected by the environment.

* Discusses the mechanisms that regulate the initial events of lung morphogenesis
* Provides a better understanding of the cellular and biochemical events involved in alveolarization
* Development of the pulmonary immune system and how the exposure to allergens during development may lead to diseases such as asthma

Book Description:

The only single volume book to consider the "life cycle" of the lung, the effects of the environment on the structure and function of the lung and respiratory health in later life.

From the Back Cover:

The respiratory system undergoes distinct and unique stages of change throughout its life cycle, starting before birth and continuing through to old age and death. It is now recognized that environmental factors can play a significant role at each of these stages, and that these factors can have different and sometimes persistent consequences when experienced during various stages of life.

Written by experts, The Lung: Development , Aging and the Environment provides an up-to-date account of the normal processes of lung development, growth and aging, followed by a detailed consideration of how environmental factors influence these processes and contribute to the quality of respiratory health.

This book is essential for graduate/post-graduate respiratory/pulmonary scientists, physicians, perinatologists, pediatricians, gerontologists, pharmacologists, epidemiologists, toxicological, health and environmental regulators and non-experts with a broad interest in human health.

KEY FEATURES:
* Describes the normal processes of lung development, growth and aging
* Considers the effects of the environmental contaminants in the air, water, soil, and diet on lung development, growth and health
* Describes genetic factors involved in susceptibility to lung disease
* Discusses respiratory health risk in children
