The Immunotoxicology specialty section is dedicated to defining the effects of chemicals and drugs on the immune system not only in humans but also in other living species. We encourage academic, industrial and regulatory groups to highlight new directions and perspectives for investigative, diagnostic and regulatory aspects in fundamental and applied immunotoxicology.Read More
The recent advances in immunotoxicology have filled gaps in our understanding of how chemicals from occupational or environmental sources dysregulate the immune system and induce severe chronic diseases or increase the risk of developing allergic, inflammatory, cancerous or infectious disorders. These considerable progresses resulted in new in vitro tests assessing the immunoreactivity of chemicals and particles.
New challenges are, however, opening before us and we must utilize the contemporary technologies and concepts emerging in fundamental immunology to open up ways of elucidating the specific immune responses activated by toxicants.
This specialty section is dedicated to defining the effects of pollutants on the immune system not only in humans but also in other living species. We encourage academic, industrial and regulatory groups to highlight new directions and perspectives for investigative, diagnostic and regulatory aspects in fundamental and applied immunotoxicology.
This section covers research contributions devoted to (but not limited to):
Indexed in: Google Scholar, CrossRef
Immunotoxicology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Specialty Grand Challenge.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Immunotoxicology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Immunotoxicology will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Toxicology.
