Comprehensive Toxicology, Third Edition, discusses chemical effects on biological systems, with a focus on understanding the mechanisms by which chemicals induce adverse health effects. Organized by organ system, this comprehensive reference work addresses the toxicological effects of chemicals on the immune system, the hematopoietic system, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, hepatic toxicology, renal toxicology, gastrointestinal toxicology, reproductive and endocrine toxicology, neuro and behavioral toxicology, developmental toxicology and carcinogenesis, also including critical sections that cover the general principles of toxicology, cellular and molecular toxicology, biotransformation and toxicology testing and evaluation.
Each section is examined in state-of-the-art chapters written by domain experts, providing key information to support the investigations of researchers across the medical, veterinary, food, environment and chemical research industries, and national and international regulatory agencies.
Organized to cover both the fundamental principles of toxicology and unique aspects of major organ systems
Thoroughly revised to include the latest advances in the toxicological effects of chemicals on the immune system
Features additional coverage throughout and a new volume on toxicology of the hematopoietic system
Presents in-depth, comprehensive coverage from an international author base of domain experts
As well as providing an invaluable reference for those within the academic research community, Comprehensive Toxicology 3e will also be of interest to those working within medical practices, the chemical industry, food science research, environmental research and consulting, forensic science, regulatory agencies, patent and environmental law, and occupational health and safety
