9780123744845: Handbook of Toxicology of Chemical Warfare Agents

This groundbreaking book covers every aspect of deadly toxic chemicals used as weapons of mass destruction and employed in conflicts, warfare and terrorism. Including findings from experimental as well as clinical studies, this one-of-a-kind handbook is prepared in a very user- friendly format that can easily be followed by students, teachers and researchers, as well as lay people. Stand-alone chapters on individual chemicals and major topics allow the reader to easily access required information without searching through the entire book.
This is the first book that offers in-depth coverage of individual toxicants, target organ toxicity, major incidents, toxic effects in humans, animals and wildlife, biosensors, biomarkers, on-site and laboratory analytical methods, decontamination and detoxification procedures, prophylactic, therapeutic and countermeasures, and the role of homeland security.

  • Presents a comprehensive look at all aspects of chemical warfare toxicology in one reference work. This saves researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest definitive details on toxicity of specific agents used in chemical warfare as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles. Will include the most agent-specific information on the market
  • Includes detailed coverage of the most exhaustive list of agents possibly used as chemical warfare agents in one source. Section 4: Agents That Can Be Used as Weapons of Mass Destruction ? 25 chapters long. Other books on the market only include a sample selection of specific agents. Offering all possible agents detailed under one cover makes this appealing to a wider audience and saves researchers time
  • The Forward will be written by Dr. Tetsuo Satoh, Chiba University, Japan. He is one of the most respected, recognizable authorities on chemical warfare agents which will set the authoritative tone for the book
  • Covers risk to humans, animals and the environment equally. Researchers involved in assessing the risks involved with a possible chemical warfare attack and those who are developing response plans to such attacks must look at not only the risks to human health but to our wildlife and environment as well. The holistic approach taken in this book ensures that the researchers have ready access to the details no matter which aspect of the effects of CWA's they might be concerned with

Review:

"Handbook of Toxicology of Chemical Warfare Agents...is a comprehensive and up-to-date monograph covering in nine sections virtually everything related to the topic, from "anthrax" to "VX." The editor did an excellent job of giving a homogenous "feel" to the contributions of more than 160 authors with varying backgrounds and points of view. The list of contributors reads like the "Who’s Who" in the field. This handbook is a most welcome addition to any library, institutional or private, and a must for anybody interested in the field." --Dr. Georg Petroianu, Florida International University, Miami, USA

"Handbook of Toxicology of Chemical Warfare Agents is an excellent reference book, not only recommended to toxicologists, but also to all medical personnel who may be involved in the response to chemical incidents." --Dr. Rene Pita,  Professor, Chemical Defense Department of the NBC Defense School, and Qualified Expert in Toxicology by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Madrid, Spain
