Currently serving as a resource for the National Center for Toxological Research in their work with the Gulf Coast oil spill, this book presents current research conducted primarily by the airforce on the toxic effects of JP-8 jet fuel on the pulmonary, immune, dermal, and nervous systems. In all, the book considers 13 toxicology studies

The Toxicity and Underlying Mechanism of Jet Propulsion Fuel-8 on the Respiratory System.Neurotoxicological and Neurobehavioral Effects from Exposure to Jet Fuels.Differential Protein Expression Following JP-8 Jet Fuel Exposure,Immune Modulation by Dermal Exposure to Jet Fuel. Absorption, Penetration, and Cutaneous Toxicity of Jet Fuels and Hydrocarbon Components. Methods of Assessing Skin Irritation and Sensitization of Jet Fuels. Understanding Systemic and Local Toxicity of JP-8 after Cutaneous Exposures. The Effects of Aerosolized JP-8 Jet Fuel Exposure on the Immune System: A Review. The Involvement of Poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation in Defense against JP-8 Jet Fuel and Other Chemical Toxicants. Evaluation of Methods Used to Generate and Characterize Jet Fuel Vapor and Aerosol for Inhalation Toxicology Studies. Genetic Damage in the Blood and Bone Marrow of Mice Treated with JP-8 Jet Fuel.
