Abstract

Elaborates basic principles for the evaluation of chemical toxicology that are specific to the physiological characteristics of infants and young children. Principles of evaluation, which were worked out by 46 leading experts, are based on a thorough review of data on postnatal physiology, metabolism, and the special factors governing exposure in this age group, including behavioural and cultural conditions. Following background information on relevant features of postnatal morphology, biochemistry, and physiology, chapters assess the kinetics of absorption, biotransformation, and elimination and point out ways in which certain conditions of postnatal development will influence the effects of chemicals on different organs and systems. The book concludes with a discussion of factors that can assist in the identification of children at risk

Abstract

A guide to the use of toxicokinetic methods in the evaluation of human health risks associated with environmental exposure to xenobiotics. Sections cover the quantitative evaluation of data on absorption, disposition, and clearance and offer extensive advice on sampling procedures, methods, and models for studies of xenobiotic metabolism
