Reseña o resumen
Medical Toxicology of Occupational and Environmental Exposures: Metals, Radiation, and Cancer is the only reference which comprehensively covers the clinical, analytical, and monitoring information needed by clinicians, students and investigators with interests in metals, radiation, and cancer. The information in all chapters is presented in a cogent, standardized format which greatly simplifies the use of the text as a reference. Reviewed by a distinguished panel of well-known toxicology experts, the information is critically evaluated and authoritative. The interdisciplinary, evidence-based approach is designed to reach beyond clinical settings to increase the scientific understanding of those in associated fields (analytical laboratories, universities, federal and state regulatory and environmental agencies) involved with decisions regarding metals, radiation, and chemical carcinogens. The consistent and concise style allows the reader to quickly locate the appropriate information necessary for informed decisions regarding the sources, host susceptibility, dose-response, clinical effect, health surveillance, and management of exposures to these substances. Additional information is readily available to the interested reader through the detailed bibliography at the end of each chapter.
Vol 1 is written to be clinically-oriented with a consistent template, allowing easier access to detailed information on specific metals.
Vol 2 provides information on the basic science and clinical medicine of radiation toxicology
Vol 3 provides concise, comprehensive coverage of the genetic background and an organ-based approach to cancer-causing exposures, histology, host susceptibility, and clinical features.
