An explosive increase in the knowledge of the effects of chemical and physical agents on biological systems has led to an increased understanding of normal cellular functions and the consequences of their perturbations. The 14-volume Second Edition of Comprehensive Toxicology has been revised and updated to reflect new advances in toxicology research, including content by some of the leading researchers in the field. It remains the premier resource for toxicologists in academia, medicine, and corporations.
Comprehensive Toxicology Second Edition provides a unique organ-systems structure that allows the user to explore the toxic effects of various substances on each human system, aiding in providing diagnoses and proving essential in situations where the toxic substance is unknown but its effects on a system are obvious. Comprehensive Toxicology Second Edition is the most complete and valuable toxicology work available to researchers today.

Dr. McQueen received a M.S. in Pharmacology from New York University and Ph.D. in Human Genetics from the University of Michigan. Her work is in the areas of pharmacogenomics, toxicogenomics and chemical carcinogenesis. She has a particular interest in the genetic basis for response to xenobiotics. Her work with the arylamine N-acetyltransferase polymorphism has demonstrated that this genetic variation can affect drug efficacy as well as toxicity of aromatic amines and hydrazines. She was the Editor-in-Chief of the second edition of Comprehensive Toxicology and is continuing in that position for the third edition to be published in 2017. Dr. McQueen is an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Fellow and a Fellow in the Academy of Toxicological Sciences (ATS).
