Translational Toxicology and Therapeutics: Windows of Developmental Susceptibility in Reproduction and Cancer
Written by leading research scientists, this book integrates current knowledge of toxicology and human health through coverage of environmental toxicants, genetic / epigenetic mechanisms, and carcinogenicity.
- Provides information on lifestyle choices that can reduce cancer risk
- Offers a systematic approach to identify mutagenic, developmental and reproductive toxicants
- Helps readers develop new animal models and tests to assess toxic impacts of mutation and cancer on human health
- Explains specific cellular and molecular targets of known toxicants operating through genetic and epigenetic mechanisms
