Comprehensive Toxicology, Third Edition
Editor in Chief: Charlene McQueen, Auburn University
Pub Date: December 2017
Comprehensive Toxicology, Third Edition discusses chemical effects on biological systems, with a focus on understanding the mechanisms by which chemicals induce adverse health effects, in order to develop strategies to evaluate and/or prevent potential toxicity. Organized by organ system, this 15 volume set addresses the toxicological effects of chemicals on the immune system, the hematopoietic system, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, hepatic toxicology, renal toxicology, gastrointestinal toxicology, reproductive and endocrine toxicology, neuro and behavioural toxicology, developmental toxicology, carcinogenesis, and includes critical sections covering the general principles of toxicology, cellular and molecular toxicology, biotransformation and toxicology testing and evaluation.
Available in both print and electronic format on ScienceDirect, each section includes state-of-the-art chapters written by domain experts, providing key information to support the investigations of researchers and students across the medical, veterinary, food, environment and chemical research industries, as well as national and international regulatory agencies. Thoroughly revised and expanded to 15 volumes to include the latest advances in research, and uniquely organized by organ system for ease of reference and diagnosis, the new edition of Comprehensive Toxicology is an essential one-stop reference for researchers and students of toxicology.

As well as being a standalone reference work, Comprehensive Toxicology, Third Edition will also be part of the Reference Module in Biomedical Sciences. Hosted on ScienceDirect, the visionary Reference Module combines thousands of comprehensive and encyclopedic articles from Elsevier’s Reference Works into one interdisciplinary resource. Every Month the content is reviewed, updated and new articles are commissioned where needed to ensure the latest developments and discoveries are included. Articles and chapters are published first in the Reference Module and then created into a multivolume set, check out some of the chapters that have already been published in the Reference Module for the Third Edition of Comprehensive Toxicology:
Biomarkers of Exposure, Effect, and Susceptibility
Modes of Chemically induced Cell Death
Current Approaches to Chemical Risk Assessment
Mechanisms of Enzyme Catalysis and Inhibition
Biomedicine & Biochemistry
The disciplines of biomedicine and biochemistry impact the lives of millions of people every day. Research in these areas has led to practical applications in cardiology, cancer treatment, respiratory medicine, drug development, and more. Interdisciplinary fields of study, including neuroscience, chemical engineering, nanotechnology, and psychology come together in this research to yield significant new discoveries. Elsevier’s biomedicine and biochemistry content spans a wide range of subject matter in various forms, including journals, books, eBooks, and online information services, enabling students, researchers, and clinicians to advance these fields.
