Description

Although toxicologic studies in the laboratory often focus on a single chemical, in the larger world, mixtures of chemicals are routinely encountered. Toxicology of Chemical Mixtures examines the mechanisms of interactions and health effects stemming from chemical mixtures in the environment. Toxicologists, pharmacologists, environmental scientists, and professionals involved in environmental clean-ups will benefit from its content. Emphasis is on low-level, long-term exposure.

Key Features

@introbul:Key Features @bul:* Some of the issues addressed include:

  • Target organ toxicities in response to chemical mixture exposures
  • Risk assessment and experimental approaches
  • Case studies and special pollution problems
  • Special pollution problems

Readership

Toxicologists, hazardous waste specialists, environmental scientists, and public health officials.
