The newest edition of this acclaimed textbook continues to detail the biochemistry underlying the toxic effects of drugs, pollution, and occupational hazards, especially at the molecular level. It thoroughly explains the dose-response relationship, disposition and metabolism, and toxic responses to foreign compounds. Fully updated, it offers an expanded section on hazard risk assessment and features emerging topics such as biomarkers and oxidative stress, as well as expanded information on a variety of man-made and naturally occurring toxins. Early chapters cover basic principles, which are followed by chapters organized by type of toxicity. Many new examples and diagrams are included.
