Classic Examples in Toxicologic Pathology, 5th Edition 2013
Edited by Eberhard Karbe, Wolfgang Drommer, Paul-Georg Germann, Gerd Morawietz and Rupert Kellner
Unfortunately, this CD-ROM is no longer for sale.
This new edition 2013 of the well-known ESTP CD-ROM presents the essence of a series of seminars in toxicologic pathology, held annually since 1994 at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Hannover, Germany, under the auspices of the ESTP.
The objective is to improve the knowledge of effects in laboratory animals, induced by a large variety of compounds, mainly pharmaceuticals, but also environmental chemicals. The information provided in 124 different manuscripts on this CD-ROM includes histopathology, pathogenesis and mechanisms, the relevance to humans, literature references (most of them linked to the abstracts in PubMed) and high resolution images of histopathologic lesions, and is a valuable source for all those working in the field of hazard identification and risk assessment. A broad-range team of internationally recognized scientists has provided the expertise to make this CD-ROM possible. The manuscripts, including their histopathologic images, do not claim to cover the whole range of the respective toxicological profiles, but concentrate rather on specific important aspects and reflect the expertise of the authors.
The table of contents (arranged by compound classes), a contributors' list and a powerful search mechanism allow the user to easily find information of interest.
Acknowledgement: The editors wish to thank all authors and all contributing companies and institutions for their research data, manuscripts, histopathologic images and support.
The series of seminars "Classic Examples in Toxicologic Pathology" will be continued in Hannover. For more information about the schedule, please see our Meeting Calendar and the announcements under ESTP Meetings.
