Book Description

Hayes’ Principles and Methods of Toxicology has long been established as a reliable and informative reference for the concepts, methodologies, and assessments integral to toxicology. The new edition contains updated and new chapters with the addition of new authors while maintaining the same high standards that have made this book a benchmark resource in the field.

Key Features:

  • The comprehensive yet concise coverage of various aspects of fundamental and applied toxicology makes this book a valuable resource for educators, students, and professionals.
  • Questions provided at the end of each chapter allow readers to test their knowledge and understanding of the material covered.
  • All chapters have been updated and over 60 new authors have been added to reflect the dynamic nature of toxicological sciences
  • New topics in this edition include Safety Assessment of Cosmetics and Personal Care Products, The Importance of the Dose/Rate Response, Novel Approaches and Alternative Models, Epigenetic Toxicology, and an Expanded Glossary.  

The volume is divided into 4 major sections, addressing fundamental principles of toxicology (Section I. "Principles of Toxicology"), major classes of established chemical hazards (Section II. "Agents"), current methods used for the assessment of various endpoints indicative of chemical toxicity (Section III. "Methods"), as well as toxicology of specific target systems and organs (Section IV. "Organ- and System-Specific Toxicology").

This volume will be a valuable tool for the audience that wishes to broaden their understanding of hazards and mechanisms of toxicity and to stay on top of the emerging methods and concepts of the rapidly advancing field of toxicology and risk assessment.

Dr. Tetyana Kobets is an Assistant Professor of Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology at the New York Medical College (NYMC), Valhalla, NY. She conducts research on the development of alternative to animal models for the assessment of genotoxic potential and other hazardous effects of environmental chemicals. Her research interests include environmental and molecular toxicology as well as molecular biology of cancer, including epigenetic and genomic mechanisms of chemical carcinogenesis. In addition to her research work, she is actively involved in teaching pathology to medical and graduate students at NYMC. Dr. Kobets received her MD degree from the Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University in Ukraine in 2010 and MS in Public Health from the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013. Her Postdoctoral Fellowship was conducted in the Division of Biochemical Toxicology at the National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR), US FDA, in Arkansas. She is a member of several professional societies, including the Society of Toxicology (SOT), Genetic Toxicology Association (GTA), Toxicology Forum and American College of Toxicology (ACT). She serves as an Associate Editor of Toxicology Research and Application.
