Environmental Toxicities and Hazards
Many environmental and industrial chemicals are known to be nephrotoxic. This section will focus on certain nephrotoxic metals and halogenated aliphatic hydrocarbons. Also included are chapters on pollutants such as polychlorinated and polybrominated biphenyls and pesticides like Kepone. These agents, unlike nephrotoxic hydrocarbons or metals, produce few acute effects on the kidney, but may potentiate the nephrotoxic effects of other chemicals.
