Metal Toxicology addresses the effects of metals on human health, as well as their mechanisms of toxicity. Unlike most books on metal toxicity which are organized by individual metals, this book is arranged inan organ-by-organ basis. It deals with unifying mechanisms of metal toxicity within a given tissue, and with exposure of a tissue to more than one metal at a time.

Key Features

Unique aspect of organ-specific orientation
Written by leading authorities in metal toxicology
Chapters of special interest include Risk Assessment, Emerging Technologies, and Molecular Biological Techniques
Serves as an excellent sourcebook of generalized information on metal toxicology, allowing for specific tissue-system referencing

@qu:"Neurotoxicology: Approaches and Methods is a welcome addition to this burgeoning research and clinical area....This publication is recommended highly to all those who are actively engaged in neurotoxicology, including those studying in vitro<$> systems, as well as those not yet familiar with the considerable advances in the discipline."
I am pleased to have it on my bookshelf and I recommend it to others.
