Abstract
Immunotoxicology has been defined as the study of adverse effects on the immune system resulting directly from environmental, occupational, or therapeutic exposure to chemicals (including drugs), biological materials and, in certain instances, physiological factors, collectively referred to as agents. It encompasses immunosuppression, allergy, autoimmunity and inflammation.
