Overview

This is the first comprehensive reference work on toxicologic pathology, an emerging field that integrates the mechanisms of toxic injury with the resulting pathology. Chapters deal systematically with organ-specific toxic injury, describing the mechanisms of injury, morphological expression of the injury, and evaluation of the pathology. Additional chapters introduce the field to the uninitiated and address such topics as techniques used for morphological evaluation, risk assessment, and regulatory aspects. The Handbook of Toxicologic Pathology will quickly establish itself as the classic reference work in this field for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Regulatory emphasis on the effects of toxic chemicals has caused the field to rapidly expand. This reference is intended for both toxicologists and pathologists, providing basic information in each area and of the combined field and dealing systematically with organ- specific injury, including mechanisms of organ injury, cellular response, and evaluation of injury. The amount of space allocated to topics readily accessible in standard textbooks is minimal; emphasis is on mechanisms of action of various classes of toxicants and the responses of tissues to these insults.
