Overview

This new book, written by two outstanding scientists in the field, describes the basic principles of toxic mechanisms and organ toxicity, providing detailed information on specific mechanisms or chemicals for exemplification. The goal is to provide sufficient information that the reader becomes familiar with the basic concepts in toxicology to enable him or her to understand the basic principles in toxicology and to evaluate the risks at given exposures. With this basic understanding the reader also will be able to critically evaluate the available information on a chemical and to identify data gaps.

In addition to the introductory chapters the book will offer the following systematic information, presented in six special sections:

  • Principles in Toxicology
  • Organ Toxicology
  • Methods in Toxicology
  • Risk Assessment
  • Risk Management
  • Toxicity of Chemicals

Fulfilling a demand for such a book, this will be a welcomed introductory text for students and non-experts alike to focus on and understand the principles of hazard identification and risk assessment of toxicants. Relevant to all those studying toxicology, biochemistry, biology, medicine and chemistry, as well as toxicologists in hospitals, universities and in industry.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you want a good toxicology text with a taste of risk assessment, it is great value." (BTS Newsletter, Summer 2008)

"The author strikes a balance between quantitative rigor and intuitive understanding, using a lively, informal style." (Fiz Karlsruhe, December 2008)

"It is amazing that so many facets of the field are highlighted in this volume, so that every reader will find more than a single chapter from which to draw benefit. This piece is a definite must for students." (Organic Chemistry, December 2008)

"An essential book for scientists in academia, industry and government agencies who want to understand how our bodies respond to toxicants, and the principles used to assess the health risks of specific exposure scenarios." (Environmental Engineering and Management Journal, July/August 2008)

"This book provides a valuable introduction to the principles of hazard identification and risk assessment of toxicants." (Chemistry World, July 2008)
