Product De@@@@@@ion:

Bringing together contributions from many of the world’s leading experts in toxinology, the Handbook of Venoms and Toxins of Reptiles covers a broad range of topics relevant to a wide range of professionals including clinicians, biomedical researchers, herpetologists, and zoologists, as well as pharmacologists and evolutionary scientists. It discusses phylogeny and gland structure, venom enzymes and toxins, non-protein venom components, and envenomation and its treatment, including ideal treatments contrasted with that which is actually available in specific areas of the world. The text also addresses venom enzymes and assay procedures used to detect venoms along with venom toxins.

Animal Hematotoxicology: A Practical Guide for Toxicologists and Biomedical Researche

  • Publisher: CRC
  • Number Of Pages: 224
  • Publication Date: 2008-07-25
  • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 1420080091
  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9781420080094
  • Binding: Hardcover

Product Description:

Hematology data from in vivo toxicology studies remains one of the most predictive measures for human risk, as the same measurements made in pre-clinical toxicology studies can be made in early clinical trials.
Covering the three main blood cell types – erythrocytes, leukocytes and thrombocytes, this work is designed to clarify topics for new entrants to the fields of laboratory animal hematology and toxicology, especially those topics where the rules for human hematology do not always apply. An entire chapter is devoted to immunotoxicology, a scientific discipline that is closely aligned with hematology.

The text also addresses pre-analytical and analytical variables that affect animal studies, as these play a far more important part when interpreting data in contrast to humans where many of these variables can be well controlled or have less physiological effect. Information has been collated from published papers, textbooks and unpublished data: Readers are provided withkey references to encourage further study
