Quantitative Modeling in Toxicology

Governments around the world are passing laws requiring industry to assess the toxicity of the chemicals/products they produce. To meet these requirements, experimental toxicologists and risk assessors are adopting quantitative approaches and computer simulations to study the biological fate and effects of chemicals and drugs. Written by leading experts in the field who contribute their own models, codes and examples, Quantitative Modeling in Toxicology outlines the current state of knowledge on the modeling of dose, tissue interactions and tissue responses. A Web site containing computer modeling codes, templates and examples that can be used by toxicologists accompanies the book.
