In more than a decade since the publication of the first edition of COMPREHENSIVE TOXICOLOGY, an explosive increase in the knowledge of the effects of chemical and physical agents on biological systems has led to an increased understanding of normal cellular functions and the consequences of their perturbations. Revised and updated to reflect new advances in toxicology research and including content by some of the leading researchers in the field, the 14-volume second edition of COMPREHENSIVE TOXICOLOGY remains the premier resource for toxicologists in academia, medicine, and corporations.
