Summary

With contributions by international experts in academia, chemical manufacturing, government research laboratories, regulatory agencies, and private consulting, this guide explores the potentially damaging influence of environmental agents on the endocrine system. It examines endocrine toxicology’s increased importance in environmental safety issues due to legislative directives established over the past ten years.

Covering all principal areas of EPA concern, Endocrine Toxicology, Third Edition provides:

  • putative endocrine disruptors and mechanisms of endocrine toxicity
  • the history and status of the regulatory process
  • mechanisms of toxic effects in various hormonal systems
  • comparisons of the endocrine responses in humans, livestock, and wildlife
  • testing methods in mammalian, fish, avian, and amphibian models
  • valuable insight into the approaches of various personnel in the field, including: government officials who make and oversee policy; scientists in charge of development and validation of testing methods; basic researchers who identify toxic mechanisms; and manufacturers responsible for environmentally benign product certification
