About this book

The growth of toxicology has been driven to a large extent by the use of extremely powerful molecular and cell biology techniques. The aim of this volume is to demonstrate how these advances are being used to elucidate causal pathways (or linkages) for potential adverse health consequences of human exposure to environmental chemicals or radiation.

Contents
