Long-established as the gold standard in the field, Casarett and Doull's Toxicology is now available in a new Sixth Edition that equips you with an unsurpassed treatment of modern toxicology, including the principles, concepts, mechanisms, and modes of thought that are the foundation of the discipline. With contributions from over 60 leading experts, this revised and updated edition is designed to give you quick access to the vital information you need in your day to day work. The book follows a logical progression from general principles to specific topics, providing a careful exposition of each toxicological principle and its practical applications. In addition, this classic book includes a full discussion of toxicokinetics ... how each body system responds to poisons ... and the specific effects of a wide range of toxic agents pesticides to radiation. The Sixth Edition of Casarett and Doull's Toxicology covers recent advances in molecular biology, pharmacogenetics, clinical toxicology, and behavioral/clinical research. In addition, this landmark work now contains chapter outlines at the beginning of each chapter that clarify the overall scope of each subject ... an improved two-color format ... new figures in hot areas such as carcinogens and genetic toxicology ... a wealth of new material on risk assessment and references to online as well as traditional journal and review articles.000.
