Drug Residues in Foods:
Pharmacology, Food Safety,
and Analysis
by Nikolaos A. Botsoglou

Providing a comprehensive overview of worldwide research, Drug Residues in Foods is a complete reference/text, offering unique data on the physicochemical properties, functions and metabolism, toxicological and pharmacological effects, regulatory control, antimicrobial resistance, and consumer perceptions of food residue regulation.

Includes an extensive list of relevant citations and analytical methods for drug residue analysis at the end of each chapter!

Contains valuable information on the chemical structures, excretion, absorption, distribution, biotransformation, and dosage for parent drugs and metabolites in drug administration for targeted species!

Discussing the advantages and drawbacks of all microbiological, immunochemical, and physicochemical methods used in drug residue analysis, Drug Residues in Foods covers

  • current techniques in solid-phase extraction and dispersion, restricted-access media, supercritical fluid extraction, immunoaffinity cleanup, capillary electrophoresis, liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometry
  • pharmacokinetic considerations of the fate of drugs in terrestrial and aquatic species
  • residue-depletion profiles of drugs in edible animal products
  • developments in antimicrobial resistance
  • the cost of residues in the livestock industry
  • stability of residues during food storage, preparation, and processing
  • incidence of violative residues in various countries, including the U.S.A., Canada, and Europe
  • future trends in the analysis of drug residues in terms of simplicity, rapidity, reliability, and applicability
  • and more!
Highlighting the most significant groups and subgroups of drugs used in food-producing animals and the causative agents of food contamination, Drug Residues in Foods is an outstanding reference for food scientists and technologists; toxicologists; veterinarians; clinicians; food and analytical chemists; biologists and biochemists; medical epidemiologists; food regulatory officials; and dairy, meat, and poultry producers; and an informative text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
