Human Developmental Toxicants: Aspects of Toxicology and Chemistry By James L. Schardein, Orest T. Macina, Publisher: CRC Number Of Pages: 427 2006
Human Developmental Toxicants offers up-to-date and concise information on the chemical structures, properties, and biological activities for 50 known agents that adversely affect prenatal and postnatal human development. Focusing on one compound per chapter, the book also includes associated biological data from animals for each agent. An accompanying CD summarizes all of the data discussed in the within an electronic database. The CD also contains three-dimensional structure representations and 49 calculated physicochemical and topological parameters of each toxicant, useful for building structure activity relationship (SAR) models linking the chemical properties with observed human developmental toxicity.
