The science of toxicology has progressed considerably since Molecular Toxicology was first published in 1997. New advances in biochemical and molecular biological experimental techniques have helped researchers understand the precise effects of toxins and foreign compounds on living things atthe molecular, cellular, and organismal levels. Breakthrough research has recently been completed illuminating the human genome and the role of enzymes in toxic biochemical reaction mechanisms. Toxicology now covers drug metabolism and design, carcinogenesis, programmed cell death, and DNA repair,among other subjects. The second edition captures these and other advances, and broadens its scope to address the experimental science of toxicology. The first edition of Molecular Toxicology has become an indispensable resource for graduate students in molecular and biochemical toxicology courses,as well as academic researchers and industrial researchers in toxicology. Rigorously updated and revised, the new edition commands an unrivaled authority in the field of molecular toxicology.
P. David Josephy is Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Guelph. Bengt Mannervik is the Karin and Herbert Jacobsson Professor of Biochemistry at Uppsala University, Sweden.
