Principles and Methods of Toxicology.pdf
Based on the paradox that all things are poisonous at certain doses and the difference between poison and remedy is quantity, the determination of safe dosage forms the basis and focus of modern toxicology. Written by a team of experts with new editors joining Dr. Hayes, this sixth edition discusses basic toxicological principles, toxic agents, target organ toxicity, testing methods, and international regulatory requirements. New chapters cover advancements in nanotechnology and all chapters are updated to reflect the changing pace of research. Readers have access to an online version of the printed book.
Praise for the Previous Edition "... this is an excellent, very favourably-priced, all-round toxicology textbook suitable for all those new to the area and also invaluable for those longer in the tooth. Buy it and see for yourself what a great read it is!" -Paul Baldrick, Covance Laboratories Ltd, UK in BTS Newsletter, Issue 32 in 2008 "Wallace-Hayes has engaged over 90 distinguished investigators to contribute to this new edition. There is also a chapter dedicated to ... Statistics ... the information is presented in a logical sequence and it is an excellent reference source. I would recommend this book to any working one aiming to study in the area of safety sciences and it is a necessity for all those working in this area." -Shirley Price in BTS Newsletter, Issue 32 in 2008
