9780470723272: General and Applied Toxicology, 6 Volume Set

Encompassing 150 articles written by leading scientists in the field, the third edition of General and Applied Toxicology provides a comprehensive and in-depth review of the basic science of toxicology, its specializations, and the application of toxicological knowledge.

This new edition reflects developments within the field that have taken place since the second edition was published in 1999.  These include:  

  • New information developed in the areas of both the fundamental and applied aspects of toxicology
  • Considerable increase in the development of fundamental information and its applications, refinement of technical methods, advances in mechanistic toxicology, and greater interest in areas of toxicology previously regarded as of limited scope
  • Changing approaches to methodological, interpretative, regulatory, and ethical aspects of basic and applied toxicology

General and Applied Toxicology, 3rd Edition is the first port of call for academic researchers, industrial researchers, regulatory professionals, and advanced students looking for timely and authoritative information in the field. Due to the increase in public and media interest in exposure to toxic substances, this provides an indispensable general reference source for general physicians, lawyers, law enforcement agencies, information resource facilities, and members of the general public.

In 2011, the content from the third edition of General and Applied Toxicology merged with the two-volume Handbook of Systems Toxicology. The result? General, Applied and Systems Toxicology - a new online resource combining traditional toxicology with the latest developments to present the ultimate reference in toxicology!  For full details visit wileyonlinelibrary.com/ref/gast

Review:

"This is an easy-to-read, well referenced book that will serve as an excellent companion to traditional core pharmaceutics texts." (The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, September 2010)

“Overall this is an excellent, comprehensive reference on toxicology and a good backup for a textbook, with abundant, excellent illustrations.” (CHOICE, September 2010)

"The main merit of this book is as an immense educational resource, primarily for students, covering toxicology in its broadest applications and containing highly specialised material not covered elsewhere. Many chapters are first class reviews written by leading authorities and these will provide advanced subject reviews from which to launch into the primary literature. It has clearly been a massive undertaking which has been completed with commendable commitment and production quality is excellent. It is also a text of few competitors and outstandingly good value, and all things considered must be rated as excellent for quality, novelty, scope and overall contribution to the toxicological literature." (BTS Newsletter, Summer 2010)

"There are many wonderfully and masterfully written chapters that relate basic science to its practical applications." (The Annals of Pharmacotherapy -  September 2010).
