This volume opens by providing a comprehensive overview of the use and regulation of metals in our society, metal properties, and available testing methodologies. Common and uncommon metal allergens and sources of exposure are then reviewed in depth, detailing allergic responses and paying special consideration to select patient populations. In the general population, the prevalence of metal allergy is high. Environmental sources of metal exposure include jewelry, clothing, electronic devices, coins, leather, diet, and occupational exposure. Metal allergy may result in allergic contact dermatitis and systemic contact dermatitis, as well as several less common manifestations. Further, metal allergy has been associated with device failure and/or dermatitis following implantation of medical devices and dental implants. As metals are ubiquitous, this book will be indispensable for a wide range of clinicians and investigators. This handy reference will meet the needs of all health professionals and investigators who are interested in metal allergy and its diagnosis and management.

Monographs in Contact Allergy, Volume 1: Non-Fragrance Allergens in Cosmetics (Part 1 and Part 2) is the first 2-part volume in an exciting series on contact allergy. It presents over 500 natural or synthetic chemicals and compounds which have caused allergic contact dermatitis in cosmetic products. Included here are INCI names, synonyms, description/definition, CAS and EU numbers, chemical class, function in cosmetics, molecular formula, structural formula and advice on patch tests. A full literature review is given of patch testing in patients, case reports of cosmetic allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, photosensitivity, immediate contact reactions and systemic side effects. This text is suitable for anyone with an interest in contact allergy, from university students to professionals, and all readers will find this informative and detailed series an invaluable resource. Key Features: Monographs of all known non-fragrance chemicals and substances which have caused allergic contact dermatitis from their presence in cosmetic products Provides lists of all functional groups (such as antioxidants, preservatives, artificial nail building, emollients, hair dyeing, hair colorants) in both the EU and US formats and all chemicals in these groups which have caused cosmetic allergy Presents an alphabetical list of all synonyms indicating their INCI names Reported cross-reactions, pseudo-cross-reactions and co-reactions, patch test sensitization and presence in cosmetic products (including data from FDA’s Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program) and chemical analyses are discussed Covers an extensive amount of information to benefit dermatologists, allergists, and non-medical professionals involved with the research, development and marketing of cosmetic products

First published 2002, Allergic contact dermatitis from nickel is a continuing and increasing health problem. Nickel dermatitis may occur in sensitized individuals following contact with nickel-containing items such as jewelry, zippers, buttons, and other objects; by nickel leaching from implants and prostheses; and following occupational exposures. Although the most common of the health effects associated with exposure to nickel, the skin penetration of nickel and its compounds is poorly understood. Nickel and the Skin: Absorption, Immunology, Epidemiology, and Metallurgy gives an extensive, updated review of major topics and new topics, and covers material progress in the field of nickel hypersensitivity. Its content complements the mandate of NiPERA, the Nickel Producers Environmental Research Association, which is to promote the health and safety of those exposed to nickel or nickel containing products in the workplace and general environment. Many books on the toxicology of metals discuss nickel and its alloys in general terms. This one provides you with in-depth information on the causes, diagnosis, prognosis, and prevention, all in one source. Nickel and the Skin: Absorption, Immunology, Epidemiology, and Metallurgy provides a guide to the evaluation and treatment of what has become the most common cause of allergic contact dermatitis.

There are five main subject areas in this volume in the series on medicinal chemistry. The first is a review of the understanding of Alzheimer's disease and the development of drugs for its treatment; the second, looking at recent efforts in modifying a naturally occuring anticancer (campothecin) for chemotherapy; the third covers the problem of getting a drug to a specific site within the context of phosphates and phosphonates; a survey of sterilization using aldehydes for the destruction of microbes both inside and outside the human body is reviewed in the fourth; and the last chapter is an account of the progress made in the biologically active enantiomer for complex synthetic asymmetric drug molecules.

"The Allergy Solution is a game changer." — David Perlmutter, M.D., #1 New York Times best-selling author of Grain Brain An epidemic of allergies is spreading around the world. One billion people suffer from allergic diseases such as asthma, hay fever, eczema, and food allergies. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. In this eye-opening book, award-winning integrated-medicine expert Leo Galland, M.D., reveals the shocking rise of hidden allergies that lead to weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, depression, joint pain, headaches, ADHD, digestive problems, and much more. Astonishing new research shows how each of these is linked to the immune imbalance that is at the root of allergy. A brilliant clinician, Dr. Galland has unlocked the power of this breakthrough science to help thousands of patients who have struggled with mysterious symptoms answer the question: "Doctor, what’s wrong with me?" In The Allergy Solution, he is joined by his son, Jonathan Galland, J.D., a passionate health writer and environmental advocate, in exposing the truth that just as the earth’s environment is out of balance, our bodies are out of balance. The modern world, with pollution, unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise, and excessive exposure to antibiotics, is fueling the rise in allergies.The Allergy Solution takes an in-depth look at how we can balance immunity through nutrition and lifestyle to reverse allergies without drugs. It offers an easy nutritional program, starting with a Three-Day Power Wash designed to "clear the tracks," to help us take back control. Do you suffer from asthma, eczema, or sinusitis? Are you sick of pain, fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, depression, anxiety, or wondering what is behind your mysterious symptoms? Let Dr. Galland’s clinical experience and unique insights into cutting-edge science guide you back to health.
