Toxicology of the Gastrointestinal Tract, Second Edition

Toxicology of the Gastrointestinal Tract, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Shayne Cox Gad
October 30, 2018

The gastrointestinal tract is the most important of the three major routes of entry (and clearance) of xenobiotics and biologic entities into the bodies of mammals. As such, it is also the major route for administration of pharmaceuticals to humans. Gastrointestinal Toxicology, Second Edition...

Neurotoxicology

Neurotoxicology

3rd Edition

G. Jean Harry, Hugh A. Tilson
March 09, 2010

This new edition presents an integrated approach to neurotoxicology, the study of organisms’ responses to changes in their environment and how interruption of the flow of information by chemical exposure causes a wide range of effects – from learning deficits, sensory disturbances in the...

Toxicology of the Skin

Toxicology of the Skin

1st Edition

Nancy A. Monteiro-Riviere
February 17, 2010

This key volume of the Target Organ Toxicology Series provides a fresh and modern approach to the subject of skin toxicology from the perspective of how the skin forms a barrier that protects the body from the external environment and how chemicals and drugs interact with the barrier properties of...
