Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This update of the first edition published over a decade ago reflects changes in the science and practice of toxicology, and in US and international requirements for biological safety assessment for each category of tests. A new chapter on pharmaco- and toxico-kinetics underscores the new emphasis on alternative methodologies minimizing testing on higher animals. The opening chapter defines the objective of product safety testing programs. The other 15 chapters treat risk evaluation issues connected to combustion, agricultural, and chemical products; and the hazards they may pose to: human genetics, reproduction, development, vulnerable organs, neurology, and behavior. Adds a new preface. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
