About this title


This updated and revised edition delineates the basic concepts and fundamental principles needed to grasp current issues in modern toxicology. In addition, new contributions help to redefine the book's scope and coverage, and illuminate new and emerging areas of toxicologic interest. True to the tradition of previous editions, the current work balances its broad coverage with a basic, fundamental, mechanistic approach to toxicology. The text is organized and presented in a logical progression of general information (general principles) to specific information on organ system toxicology, specific agent toxicology and environmental toxicology.

About the Author:

Curtis D. Klaassen, Ph.D., is Professor of Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Therapeutics at the Unviersity of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, KS.
