    "Offers unique data on the physiochemical properties, functions and metabolism, toxicological and pharmacological effects, regulatory control, antimicrobial resistance, and consumer perceptions of food residue regulation."

    Part 1 Drugs in food-producing animals: a general view of drug usage; some pharmacokinetic considerations; antibacterial drugs; anthelminthic drugs; anticoccidial and other antiprotozoal drugs; antimicrobial growth promoters; anabolic hormonal-type growth promoters; other drugs; benefits and risks of drug usage. Part 2 Residues in food: drug residues and public health; safety assessment and control of residues; global harmonization of regulatory requirements; incidence of violative residues in food; factors influencing the occurrence of residues in food; costs of residues in the livestock industry; residue avoidance management; stability of residues during food processing; consumer perceptions and concerns.
