Summary

This newest addition to the Companion Handbook Series is perfect for the toxicologist or pharmacy student who requires a brief introduction to the fundamental principles of toxicology but does not have immediate access to the textbook, nor the time for consultation. Fully page referenced to the classic text in the field, concepts are organized and presented in a logical progression from general principles to specific topics such as organ system toxicology, specific agent toxicology, and environmental toxicology. Where possible the information is summarized in tables or presented in outline format.
