Veterinary Toxicology Excerpt :

Veterinary Toxicology, in recent years, has acquired greater importance than ever before because of increasing and indiscriminate use of farm chemicals and drugs accompanied by rapid degrading impact of environmental pollution on health of animals. The indiscriminate feeding habits of domestic animals especially in developing countries make them more prone to the impact of natural toxicants especially Phytotoxins and Mycotoxins. Toxicology has been recognized as a separate discipline in veterinary sciences both at undergraduate and post graduate levels for the last four decades and a lot of emphasis has been given on its teaching, research and practical utility from clinical point of view. The book has been prepared in a most comprehensive manner with up-to date reference which offers invaluable, clinically oriented guidance on numerous potentially toxic substances. In addition, to covering traditional and non-traditional areas of toxicology it provides a wealth of quick reference charts and tables that put vital information at your finger tips in seconds

Toxicology of Organophosphate and Carbamate Compounds Excerpt :

This text/reference book provides the most comprehensive coverage of anticholinesterase compounds (Organophosphates and Carbamates), which constitute the largest number of chemicals that are primarily used as insecticides in agriculture, industry, and around the home/garden. Some OPs (nerve agents) have been used in chemical warfare and terrorist attacks, while some OPs and CMs have been recommended as therapeutic agents in human medicine as well as in veterinary medicine. Many chemicals of both classes are extremely toxic and lack selectivity, thus their inadvertent/accidental use continues to pose a threat to human and animal health, aquatic systems and wildlife. These anticholinesterase agents produce a variety of toxicological effects in target and nontarget organs. In light of this complexicity, this multi-authored book is written by the well known scientists from many countries. The book is organized into nine sections, with a total of 49 chapters, to provide in-depth knowledge on various aspects of OP and CM compounds, including their use, classification, mechanism-based toxicity, and prophylactic and therapeutic measurements. Several chapters are written with special emphasis to cover timely topics, such as chemical warfare agents, physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modeling, structure and function of cholinesterases, paraoxonase, carboxylesterases; developmental neurotoxicity, the intermediate syndrome, oxidative stress, endocrine disruption, and DNA damage/gene expression and carcinogenesis. Section-VI with 5 chapters is specifically devoted to risk assessment, and safety and regulatory guidelines for pesticides. Describes everything you need to know about Organophosphates and Carbamates Extensively covers pesticides, nerve agents, therapeutic drugs, and flame retardants Describes epidemiology of the world's major disasters involving Organophosphates and Carbamates Covers animal, human, aquatic, and wildlife toxicity of Anticholinesterases Insights into
