Title: Advances in Morphogenesis Vol 1.
Publication Date: 1961
Book Description Springer, UK, 1996. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 3540612599. Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology, Volume 124/I. Hardcover, from closed pharmaceutical company library, appears unread. 638 pages, index, illustrated with charts, tables, colour photos and diagrams. Prevention of birth defects caused by exogenous chemicals is a goal of both primary care providers, drug developers, experimental teratologists, and risk assessors. This two-volume work provides assessment of how embryos accomplish morphogenesis at the molecular and cellular level, the key biochemical processes that drive morphogenesis and which are thus at risk to disruption, and the mechanisms of action by which known teratogens exert their effects. These volumes provide the first comprehensive compilation of material focused on the understanding of the mechanism of action of chemicals which cause birth defects. A valuable reference work for clinicians, health councilors, teratologists, developmental biologists and risk assessors. Contents clean, tight and bright. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 20734
