Glossary for Toxicokinetics of Chemicals
This glossary contains definitions of 355 terms frequently
used in the multidisciplinary field of toxicokinetics. The glossary
is compiled primarily for chemists who find themselves currently working
in toxicology and requiring a knowledge of the expressions used in
toxicokinetics, especially in relation to hazard and risk assessment.
Medical terms are included because of their frequent occurrence in
the toxicological literature and because chemists would not normally
be expected to be familiar with them. There are three annexes, one
containing a list of abbreviations used in toxicokinetics, one containing
a list of abbreviations of international bodies and legislation that
are relevant to toxicology and chemical safety, and one giving sources
of interest for further reading.
