Thoroughly examining the popular and expanding field of reproductive toxicology, this newly revised and expanded third edition provides the latest, cutting-edge scientific developments in this constantly evolving discipline. Reproductive Toxicology’s contributors are experienced regulatory agency and Clinical Research Organization representatives who currently utilize the new techniques discussed in the text and continue to revolutionize reproductive toxicology research.
This ground-breaking resource includes:
- New and important critical mechanistic topics such as epigenetics and omics
- The first significant compilation of epigenetic mechanisms
- An in-depth analysis of the role of genomics, proteomics, and metabolomicsin human reproduction
- New guidelines with respect to the latest research applications in the field
