Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This volume is a fascinating read for toxicologists interested in liver toxicity, since it provides an up-to-date view of the many mechanisms of hepatotoxicity… a must-have book which should be kept close at hand, in which case it will be opened regularly by toxicologists concerned with the development and safe use of medications in a practical context." —The British Toxicology Society Newsletter, 2008 (Review of 2nd edition)
