Overview

Fundamentals of Toxicologic Pathology focuses on providing basic information integrated from both toxicology and pathology dealing with the mechanisms of toxic injury and morphologic expression of that injury at the subcellular, cellular, and tissue levels. This text is an enhanced and edited version of the Handbook of Toxicologic Pathology, creating a more concise and affordable text ideal for graduate students of toxicologic pathology and scientists working in academia or industry.

Key Features
• Fills the need for a basic textbook in toxicologic pathology
• Addresses basic principles of toxicologic pathology and deals systematically with organ-specific injuries
• Provides the student a glimpse of lesions caused by toxicants, and whenever possible, to elaborate on the mechanisms which cause those lesions

Audience: Ideal for graduate students in toxicology and pathology courses in departments of toxicology, pathology, pharmacology, veterinary science, and environmental science; scientists in academic institutions where toxicology, pathology, or toxicologic pathology is taught for diagnostic, regulatory, or research purposes.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joan M. Mankowski, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This is an organ system-based textbook of current principles and knowledge in toxicologic pathology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a condensed and updated version of the editors' 1991 reference text, the Handbook of Toxicologic Pathology. It describes the morphologic and structural affects of toxicants and the basic mechanisms which produce those changes. This revision foregoes the detailed description of mechanisms and descriptive morphology while retaining the core material. The editors have succeeded in producing a very readable, basic textbook of current toxicologic pathology.
Audience: The book's intended audience spans a wide spectrum from graduate students in toxicology, pathology, and environmental sciences to academic scientists and hospital pathologists. Its emphasis on core principles and mechanisms will prove most beneficial to graduate students and those requiring less detailed information.
Features: The book provides many high quality, well labeled reproductions of light and electron micrographs. The diagrams and tables generally achieve the correct balance of completeness and conciseness. The end of chapter suggested readings are up to date, although somewhat scant. A glossary completing the chapter on chemical carcinogenesis is a thoughtful and useful feature.
Assessment: This book will be an excellent resource for graduate students in toxicology, pathology, and environmental health studies. It provides a thorough organ system based overview of current knowledge and fundamental principles of toxicologic pathology, devoid of the detailed treatment of descriptive morphology and mechanisms provided in reference texts.
