Formerly titled Pathology of the Fischer Rat, Boormanâs Pathology of the Rat continues to be the most comprehensive pathology reference and standard on rat strains. A vital resource for researchers across science and medicine using rat models in the laboratory, Boormanâs Pathology of the Rat offers an added emphasis on the Sprague-Dawley and Wistar rat strains, in line with current research across academia, government, and industry. In addition, the book provides standard diagnostic criteria, basic content on histology, histological changes that result from drug toxicity and neoplasm, pathology terminology, and four-color photographs from the NTP archive and database.
With updated references and photographs, as well as coverage of all rat strains, Boormanâs Pathology of the Rat is the standard in the field, invaluable to toxicologists, biologists, and other scientists engaged in regulatory toxicology who must make the transition from pathology results to promulgation of meaningful regulations.
Veterinary pathologists, toxicologists, toxicologic pathologists, and laboratory animal researchers using the rat model in laboratories across academia, in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and at regulatory agencies.
