Reflecting the embryonic state of the field, the first edition of Dermatoxicology, published in 1977, numbered 567 pages. Now the foundational reference in dermal toxicology, this seventh edition consists of 1,032 pages and defines what was once a largely intuitive field but has evolved into an established science of metrics and mechanisms. Updated and expanded to reflect the latest developments, the seventh edition includes fundamental information on the mechanisms of action of toxic substances on the skin and practical information on the many methods for evaluating dermal toxicity. Unparalleled in its coverage and broad in scope, with the addition of 34 new chapters, this volume keeps pace with the expanding science. A perennial bestseller, this definitive text explores the latest developments in the field. With contributions from leading international experts, it continues the tradition of providing unsurpassed theoretical and practical guidance.
