Research into the biochemical basis of toxicology has expanded rapidly over recent years, amidst concerns over the adverse effects of drugs, environmental pollution and occupational hazards. Following the acclaimed first two editions of Principles of Biochemical Toxicology, the author has expanded the text to include summary sections, questions and model answers and thoroughly revised artwork. These features, plus the new easy-to-read format, will make biochemical toxicology more accessible to undergraduates and postgraduates encountering the subject for the first time. This comprehensive textbook provides a thorough explanation of dose-response relationships, disposition and metabolism, toxic responses to foreign compounds and detailed examples to illustrate mechanisms of toxicity. Students and lecturers will find the clear and concise approach, which established this book as the leading textbook in its field, an essential aid to learning and teaching.
