Developments and Ethical Considerations in Toxicology covers a diverse range of topics, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of this subject. It presents a rich and stimulating exchange of ideas and opinions about toxicology and provides a valuable insight into current thinking and research. The book looks at controversial questions on the ethics and future of experimental, regulatory and clinical toxicology and examines the interplay between human activities and environmental processes from the points of view of human health and environmental management. It also presents recent advances in research on the role of biotransformation enzymes and reactions, together with the latest developments in techniques for their study. Developments and Ethical Considerations in Toxicology is a must for graduates, researchers and professionals with involvement in toxicology and the biological sciences.
