Toxicology studies are carried out on all drug substances to ensure safety. With the focus on medicinal drugs, the most important safety issues of drugs are covered. This includes registration requirements of new drugs and pharmacovigilance.

The book includes a general introduction and chapters on basic toxicological principles, organ toxicity of drugs is illustrated by chapters on toxicity in the liver, in the kidney, in the respiratory system and in the immune system.

This book combines a broad treatment of the issues relevant for assessing the safety/efficacy balance of a new drug with information on the toxicological knowledge base and methodology.

This is an introductory text for students at BSc, MSc and PhD levels, and will be an excellent companion to pharmacology textbooks.
