Essentials of Pathology for Toxicologists
Currently, the only pathology books available to pathologists are large tomes written for medical and veterinary students. Essentials of Pathology for Toxicologists is an outstanding starting point for those coming to grips with the fundamentals such as cell damage and cell death. It includes discussion on inflammation, hypertrophy, neoplasia, thrombosis, restoration and repair, and immune disease. It also contains guidelines for understanding pathologists' reports and their working methods - written specifically for the toxicologist. A thorough hematology glossary also helps toxicologists familiarize themselves with key pathology terms.
