While the historic view is that toxicology is the study of poisons, in fact it is just as appropriate to consider modern toxicology as a way of determining new chemotherapies for cancer, microbial diseases, parasites or fungal infections.
Biological Toxicology will thoroughly prepare your students for participation in toxicology research. Through a presentation of experimental evidence, students will understand the process for designing and collecting data in biological toxicology research. In five sections, the book examines the foundations of the field, toxic reactions of cells, toxic reactions of tissues/organs, toxic reactions of ecosystems, and biological toxicants.
