The intentions of this volume are to present both a review of the more important aspects of the basic and applied toxicology of anticholinesterase organophosphates and carbamates, and also to allow the reader the benefit of unpublished information and experience from a number of experts in this area. To allow viewpoints as globally representative as possible from East and West, contributors have been drawn from 18 countries. We are particularly pleased and grateful to have as one of the authors Dr George B. Koelle, who 27 years ago edited "Cholinesterase and Anticholinesterase Agents", for long widely recognized as the leading text in this field.;In view of the varied, extensive and global uses of organophosphates and carbamates, it is hoped that this volume will be of value to a wide spectrum of professionals and organizations. Particularly, we believe that this text will be a reference source to biochemists, pharmacologists, general physicians, general and clinical toxicologists, emergency room and occupational health physicians, poison control centres, pesticide scientists, ecotoxicologists, industrial hygienists, and forensic toxicologists and pathoogists. Additionally, the book should be useful to those reading for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in subjects with a toxicological facet, or for those working towards various toxicology certifying examinations.
Very good condition.
