This volume provides an up-to-date review of the molecular mechanisms of toxicity. Individual chapters deal with specific aspects of toxicity problems associated with selected organs.
- Contains a review of contemporary knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of toxicity as applied to various organs
- Contrasts with other volumes in dealing with the mechanistic approach to the subject
- Discusses selected organs in separate chapters
Research toxicologists, pharmacologists, oncologists, and physiologists.
