Description

This excellent volume was designed and edited with two major ideas in mind: firstly, the field of clinical toxicology is changing and an acknowledgement of these changes is warranted; secondly, no comprehensive compilation of recently published case reports of, and clinical studies on, human poisonings is available, which is in sharp contrast to the closely related field of drug-induced side-effects.

The book focusses on issues of recent concern, or issues poorly documented in the past. It is important that clinical toxicologists gain a better knowledge of all the available techniques of toxicological analysis. A better understanding of the way a sound interpretation of results should be conducted for the benefit of the patient's management, and a comprehensive set of data on the kinetics of the most common pharmaceutical drugs and many chemicals is required.

Human Toxicology is a timely reference work which will be welcomed by a broad audience of toxicology professionals.

Reviews

@qu:The title promises a very important contribution to pharmacology and toxicology...In terms of completeness and literature for further reading the promise is well fulfilled @source:Toxicology @qu:...Human Toxicology is not a textbook, but rather is a series of contributions on rapidly developing topics in human poisonings, that are likely to become major focuses in the future.
...The 34 chapters are consistently referenced with citations published within the last decade, and written in concise phraseology. @source:Veterinary and Human Toxicology
