Summary "Adrenal Toxicology addresses the increased interest in adrenocortical toxicology and the need for a resource that makes techniques available to examine adrenal endocrine disruption. Examining current techniques and the latest advancements the book reviews the endocrinology, pharmacology, pathology and toxicology of the adrenal gland. It provides information on the range of drugs and chemicals that affect adrenocortical function and suggests standardized approaches for in vivo and in vitro assessment."--Jacket
