Introduction to Genetic Toxicology
Wiley, 1985 - 184 pages
Genetic Toxicology as a discipline examines the short and long-term effects of all physical and chemical agents in the environment on the human genetic system. It is a relatively new, but now fast-growing field of research as more and more substances are found to have unexpected long-term genetic side- effects. This short introduction includes in one volume various methodologies for assessing toxicity; a classification of potential mutagenic pollutants according to their danger to man, and finally some possible solutions to genetic toxicology problems. This material has been amended and substantially updated for the English edition."
