Allergic Contact Dermatitis presents all up-to-date chemical and physio-chemical concepts for the study and understanding of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). The book covers all aspects of ACD - skin penetration and metabolism, identification of sensitizers and hapten-protein interaction, including new concepts of increasing importance such as molecular recognition and quantitative structure-activity relationships. In addition, comprehensive references are provided, making this the most complete available text-book for dermatologists.
Allergic Contact Dermatitis reaches an equilibrium between fundamental concepts and clinical applications and thus presents an essential guideline to dermatologists, allergologists, biochemists and toxicologists.
