A compilation of published scientific information, including human, animal, cellular, and theoretical studies, Depleted Uranium: Properties, Uses and Health Consequences provides the most current and comprehensive collection of information on depleted uranium health hazards. The editor and her international panel of contributors are clinical and basic researchers at the forefront of toxicology, carcinogenesis, and human epidemiology. They review key findings on DU biological and health effects and comprehensively describe the research progress made during the last 11 years.

The book's coverage ranges from cellular malignant transformation and carcinogenesis to animal toxicity and neurotoxicity, and concludes with human medical surveillance studies, uranium measurement methodologies, risk modeling, and environmental modeling. The chapters provide information on cellular and animal studies, in vivo carcinogenesis, risk modeling, uranium measurement methodologies, medical surveillance programs, and environmental monitoring.
