About this book

Unlike many existing books on toxicology that cover either toxicity of a particular substance or toxicity of chemicals on particular organ systems, "Principles of Toxicologic Risk Assessment" lays out the principle activities of conducting a toxicological risk assessment, including international approaches and methods for the risk assessment of chemical substances. It illustrates each step in the process: hazard identification, a dose response assessment, and exposure assessment. The book also summarizes the basic concepts of interaction of chemicals in mixtures and discusses various approaches to testing such mixtures.


Contents

Introduction. Data for Hazard Identification and Characterisation. Hazard Assessment. Exposure Assessment. Risk Characterisation. Combination Effects.
