In Vitro Methods in Pharmaceutical Research provides a comprehensive guide to laboratory techniques for evaluating in vitro organ toxicity using cellular models. Step-by-step practical tips on how to perform and interpret assays for drug metabolism and toxicity assessment are provided, along with a comparison of different techniques available. It is a welcome addition to the literature at a time when interest is growing in cellular in vitro models for toxicology and pharmacology studies.

  • Meets the continuing demand for information in this field
  • Compares In Vitro techniques with other methods
  • Describes cell-culture methods used to investigate toxicity in cells derived from different organs
  • Includes contributions by leading experts in the field
