Statistics and experimental design for toxicologists

 Statistics, Toxicology  Comments Off on Statistics and experimental design for toxicologists
Sep 132018
 

Statistics and Experimental Design for Toxicologists has been designed as both a sourcebook for the practicing toxicologist and a textbook for the student toxicologist. Its function is to provide both with tools for the rigorous and critical analysis of experimental data. Assuming only basic mathematical skills, the volume provides a complete and exhaustive introduction to the statistical methods available to and used in the discipline. For each technique presented, a practical example is provided and a collection of problems is also included, together with appendices containing the necessary tables of test values.

Chemical Warfare Agents: Chemistry, Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Therapeutics, Second Edition

 Pharmacology, Toxicology  Comments Off on Chemical Warfare Agents: Chemistry, Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Therapeutics, Second Edition
Aug 082018
 

The first edition of this book, Chemical Warfare Agents: Toxicity at Low Levels, was published just prior to the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. Reflecting a greater sense of urgency within the field of chemical defense since this event, research related to chemical warfare agents (CWAs) continues to expand at a remarkable pace.
Chemical Warfare Agents: Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Therapeutics, Second Edition explores the latest methods and products for preventing, diagnosing, and treating the acute and chronic effects of toxic CWA exposure. This edition citesthe key developments in chemical defense research since 2001, including new epidemiological or clinical studies of exposed or potentially exposed populations; new treatment concepts and products; improved organization of the national response apparatus in the U.S. addressing the potential for CWA terrorism; and improved diagnostic tests that enable rapid diagnosis and treatment.
Leading researchers explain how these breakthroughs help researchers determine physiologically relevant detection thresholds and develop more effective countermeasures and national response procedures. Chemical Warfare Agents provides first responders and emergency medical teams with the most up-to-date information they need to prepare for and handle natural disasters, chemical spills, terrorism, and warfare situations―quickly and effectively.

Modern Poisons: A Brief Introduction to Comtemporary Toxicology

 Toxicology  Comments Off on Modern Poisons: A Brief Introduction to Comtemporary Toxicology
Jul 272018
 

Traditional toxicology textbooks tend to be doorstops: tomes filled with important but seemingly abstract chemistry and biology. Meanwhile, magazine and journal articles introduce students to timely topics such as EPA and endocrine disruption or the carcinogenic effects of pesticides, but don’t provide the fundamentals needed to understand the science of toxicity. Written by a professor of toxicology, Modern Poisons bridges this gap.
This accessible book explains basic principles in plain language while illuminating the most important issues in contemporary toxicology. Kolok begins by exploring age-old precepts of the field such as the dose-response relationship and the concept, first introduced by Ambroise Pare in the sixteenth century, that a chemical’s particular action depends on its inherent chemical nature. The author goes on to show exactly how chemicals enter the body and elicit their toxic effect, as well as the body’s methods of defence.

With the fundamentals established, Kolok digs into advances in toxicology, tracing the field’s development from World War II to the present clay. The book examines both technical discoveries and their impacts on public policy. Highlights include studies of endocrine-disrupting chemicals in toiletries and prescriptions, the emerging science on prions, and our growing understanding of epigenetics.

Readers learn not only how toxic exposure affects people and wildlife, but about the long-term social and environmental consequences of our chemicals. Whether studying toxicology itself, public health, or environmental science, readers will develop a core understanding of, and curiosity about, this fast-changing field.

In this third edition, the editors have accounted for the numerous changes in protocols for managing poison ingestions and have again provided an indispensable resource for all students of pharmacy and the health sciences on the basic principles of clinical toxicology. The book’s unique focus on the fundamentals helps the reader understand why events occur and why a particular treatment is selected. Each chapter presents pertinent information on classes of toxic agents, their common sources and usual methods of intoxication, incidence and frequency of poisoning, mechanisms of action, clinical signs and symptoms of poisoning and management guidance. The text includes illustrative case studies, carefully selected to reinforce the information covered. Each chapter concludes with review questions to further enhance comprehension.

Nanotoxicology in Caenorhabditis elegans

 Toxicology  Comments Off on Nanotoxicology in Caenorhabditis elegans
Jun 012018
 

This book focuses on the toxicity of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) and their underlying physicochemical, cellular, physiological, and molecular mechanisms. Further, it covers ENMs’ translocation and their targeted organ toxicology, and discusses chemical and pharmacological strategies used to combat nanotoxicity. Engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) are defined as materials with one or more dimensions of less than 100 nm, and have shown considerable promise in several areas of development. At the same time, the potential toxicity of ENMs for human health and environmental organisms is increasingly attracting attention.
In addition to the typical properties of model animals, Caenorhabditis elegans is extremely sensitive to environmental toxicants, which makes it the ideal in vivo assay system for toxicological studies. C. elegans has been widely used in toxicity assessment and toxicological studies of environmental toxicants and stresses. This book provides a comprehensive summary of nanotoxicology research on C. elegans.
