  • Summary

    Compactly written and easy to read, Encyclopedia of Clinical Toxicology is designed for quick reference and retrieval of vital, even life-saving information about the effects, interactions, and lethal doses of thousands of toxic substances that can destroy or seriously endanger health, or even cause death. An authoritative and an unmatched resource, it stands alone as the quintessential reference for all work in this field and supplies material documented nowhere else in published texts.

    The book not only contains information otherwise impossible to find, but also describes adverse effects and interactions often not reported by manufacturers, and not published in PDRs and the other standard compendia. The author, Dr. Irving S. Rossoff, is renowned for his detailed knowledge of clinical toxicology derived from a long and extensive background in medical practice, homicide investigations and forensic science, and as a consultant on many continents to drug and chemical manufacturers, research laboratories, pathologists, coroners, governments, and courts. Based on material drawn from Dr. Rossoff's massive databank of more than 100,000 subject folders compiled over the past 60 years, the book includes actual case reports that elucidate toxic events and therapy. Encycolpedia of Clinical Toxicology provides you with a wealth of information on a vast range of substances.
