Molecular Dosimetry and Human Cancer: Analytical, Epidemiological, and Social Considerations

This book provides readers with a broad view of the field of molecular dosimetry by discussing its origins, underlying concepts, the wide range of approaches to making the measurements and applications for the results. Specific topics include the direct assessment of human carcinogens and assessment of low level risks, molecular epidemiology, validation of molecular epidemiologic methods, quantitative analysis of DNA adducts, the application of fluorescence to analysis of genotoxicity, exposure control versus risk assessment, genetic testing in the workplace, and medical screening for carcinogenesis.
