CRC Press title “Principles of Toxicology, Third Edition” explores the biochemical, physiological, and environmental aspects of the subject

Boca Raton, Fla., July 15, 2015— CRC Press (, a global science, technology and medical publisher, is pleased to announce the publication of “Principles of Toxicology, Third Edition.” Written by Dr. Karen E. Stine and Dr. Thomas M. Brown, this new edition is updated and revised to include reference to several major new directions in the science of toxicology, including significant changes in thinking about cancer and carcinogenesis as well as the rapid expansion of toxicogenomics. The book also includes new chapters on topics of timely interest such as radiation, food safety, and natural toxins.

As in previous editions, chapters combine background material in the appropriate discipline—which helps readers review and remember the basics—with new information on toxicology to stress key principles and concepts. Also included is a selection of updated case studies through which principles and concepts are applied to real-world issues.

The book features an extensive cross-referencing system linking all sections and enhancing the integration of material, thus helping readers tie it all together. It also includes an appendix of selected toxicants that describes chemical structure, category of use, and toxicity. These features make specific information quick and easy to find. The easy-to-follow format and clear presentation of information in this book will make this one of the most useful references on your shelf.

"The purpose of the book is to serve as a comprehensive, yet readable, textbook for a first course in toxicology at the undergraduate or beginning graduate level. We have chosen to cover the broad and interdisciplinary field of toxicology through a “levels of organization” approach, with initial chapters focusing on molecular and cellular toxicology, the middle of the book emphasizing physiological toxicology, and a later chapter introducing ecological toxicology.” — Karen E. Stine & Thomas M. Brown – from the preface
