The Evaluation of Toxicological Data for the Protection of Public Health: Proceedings of the International Colloquium, Luxembourg, December 1976 focuses on the review of toxicological tests and methods used in toxicological evaluation of chemicals and reconsideration of these procedures in identifying decision-making processes involved in the protection of public health.
The selection first discusses reviews of toxicological tests, including introductory remarks and comments on acute toxicity; problems associated with the testing of environmental mutagens; and the testing of carcinogenic potentials. The publication also examines the uncertainties related to the evaluation of the health hazards of environmental chemicals from toxicological data and epidemiological monitoring of indices of chemical hazards.
The book takes a look at safety factors and their application in toxicological evaluation; ecotoxicological approaches for the protection of environment and health; and use of biological materials as environmental pollution gauges. The text also discusses acute toxicity, teratogenic effects of pollutants, and examples of ecotoxicological research.
The selection is a dependable source of data for readers interested in the evaluation of toxicological data relative to the protection of public health.
