Toxic Chemicals Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Pharmacological Perspectives of Toxic Chemicals and Their Antidotes
edited by S.J.S. Flora

Pharmacological Perspectives of Toxic Chemicals and Their Antidotes provides up-to-date pharmacological and toxicological information on the following and includes their mechanism of toxicity:

  • chemical warfare agents
  • industrial chemicals
  • environmental toxins
  • metalloid and array of miscellaneous agents

This book covers topics of current interest like pharmacology of nitric oxide, oxidative stress, modulation of brain cytochrome p450s by environmental chemicals, modalities of nociception and the underlying molecular mechanisms including areas of pharmacology and toxicological interest never discussed in detail like capsaicin, cyanide, arsenic toxicity and cyanobacterial toxin etc.

A number of antidotes, which are being used, or currently being investigated, for the treatments of the above toxicants are also discussed in this book.
