PARP as a Therapeutic Target (Handbooks in Pharmacology and Toxicology)

 Pharmacology, Toxicology  Comments Off on PARP as a Therapeutic Target (Handbooks in Pharmacology and Toxicology)
Feb 262020
 

Recent research in cell death mechanisms has rekindled interest in PARP’s (Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymerase) intriguing role in necrosis and apoptosis. While the details of how PARP1 functions are still being elucidated, it has tremendous potential as a promising drug target. PARP inhibitors’ dual actions of preventing cell death and abating inflammation have demonstrated remarkable acute effects in animal models of various diseases. PARP as a Therapeutic Target covers the clinical aspects of this up-and-coming drug that counteracts the damage done by free radicals. Leading international experts currently working on ways to apply it share their views of recent developments and future directions of PARP research. They discuss its therapeutic potential in various disease conditions, such as ischemia, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and septic shock.The intensified PARP drug development effort has raised expectations for possible clinical trials in the near future to establish the tolerance of PARP inhibitors in healthy humans, its efficacy in treating patients with different diseases, and the long term effect of PARP inhibition. PARP as a Therapeutic Target provides a comprehensive understanding of how PARP works to aid in the better design of its inhibitors for therapeutic purposes.

Aflatoxins: Food Sources, Occurrence and Toxicological Effects

 Toxicology  Comments Off on Aflatoxins: Food Sources, Occurrence and Toxicological Effects
Nov 152019
 

Progress in understanding the biology of Aspergillus has greatly improved with the new techniques in genome sequencing and the developed molecular tools that enable rapid genetic analysis of individual genes. Particularly, the genetics of aflatoxin synthesis is regarded as a model to gain insight into fungal secondary metabolism. This compilation discusses topics that include the prevalence of aflatoxin B1 in cereals; contamination exposure, toxicology and control of aflatoxins in food and feed; immunosuppressive actions of aflatoxin; hazards and regulations; toxicological effects, risk assessment and legislation for aflatoxins; and the threat aflatoxins have on the economy and health.

Toxicologic Pathology for Non-Pathologists

 Pathology, Toxicology  Comments Off on Toxicologic Pathology for Non-Pathologists
Nov 032019
 

This extensive volume began as a short course primarily geared toward toxicologists who want to expand their understanding of toxicologic pathology in order to be better study directors while also proving to be of great interest to other drug development scientists and regulatory reviewers. The overall goal is to help non-pathologists understand, contextualize, and communicate the pathology data and interpretations from the study pathologist in a practical and usable format. Within the book, readers will find an overview of general pathology concepts that include fundamental vocabulary and the basics of pathophysiological processes, along with numerous chapters devoted to pathology in specific organ systems as well as topics such as biomarkers, correlation of clinical pathology endpoints (chemistry and hematology) with microscopic changes, and well-known pathology findings for classes of toxic substances.

Authoritative, practical, and comprehensive, Toxicologic Pathology for Non-Pathologists aims to help non-pathologists understand, converse in, and apply a basic understanding of pathology in their day-to-day careers.
