Summary

Ciguatera poisoning is a worldwide problem whose impact has serious health and economic ramifications. Ciguatera Seafood Toxins provides an introduction and technical reference for this syndrome, covering topics such as medical approaches to treatment, legal avenues for those who become poisoned, and an overview of the areas where ciguatera is common. Other chapters in the text discuss research issues, such as assay systems for ciguatera, neurological effects of the disease, and light and electron microscopy studies of tissue exposed to ciguatera-type toxins. The book provides comprehensive coverage of the laboratory techniques used in the purification and molecular characterization of the toxins implicated in the disease, as well as a discussion of the genetic variability of one of the causative organisms (Gambierdiscus toxicus) in culture. This is a "must have" book for anyone concerned with ciguatera poisoning and its legal, scientific, and medical consequences.
