In Vivo Immunotoxicity
The major function of the immune system is to provide host integrity and to ensure appropriate function of organs and tissues. To accomplish this, it must be able to distinguish self from non-self and be able to assess tissue-specific cell status and function. As a fully dispersed system, it is represented in most tissues, organs and peripheral sites (e.g. respiratory, dermal, gastrointestinal, neurological, cardiovascular, reproductive, hepatic and endocrine). That's to say, the immune system presents a readily accessible toxicological target regardless of the route of hazardous substance exposure.
Therefore, from a risk assessment perspective, the issue is not related to whether immune exposure occurs following a hazardous substance exposure, but related to whether a given exposure is likely to produce an adverse immunotoxic outcome among susceptible populations, such as an altered immune function that may increase incidence or severity of infectious diseases or cancer.
