Advances in Dermatological Sciences (Issues in Toxicology #20) (Hardcover)
This book collates the major research achievements in dermatological research from the past two years into a single source. It incorporates a broad range of topics including: experimental models; toxicology; regulatory matters; exposure assessment; therapeutics; cosmetics, and decontamination. Each section starts with an introductory chapter summarizing work to date and explaining how new research detailed in subsequent chapters contributes to our understanding of the skin. There are also predictions of where the next major developments are likely to occur. Readily accessible yet detailed, this book will interest researchers in the clinical, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, as well as academics and students.
