Introduction to Toxicology, 3rd Edition by Timbrell, John A :: As with many areas of biomedical science, the study of toxicology has been influenced by fundamental changes in biochemistry and molecular biology and now by the newly emerging sciences of genomics, proteomics and metabonomics. These are having a major impact on the study and potentially an understanding of the interactions of chemicals with living sytems. Also new areas and types of interaction have emerged since the second edition of this book. Some of these, such as interactions with the peroxisome proliferator activated receptor, are now mentioned in this new edition.
However, this book is primarily concerned with the basic underlying principles of toxicology at the introductory level and these remain largely unchanged. Therefore the format of the previous editions has been retained with specific examples used to illustrate these basic principles. The major changes have been updating the existing text in relation to new knowledge or nomenclature and the inclusions of new examples.
