In Vitro Methods in Pharmaceutical Research provides a comprehensive guide to laboratory techniques for evaluating in vitro organ toxicity using cellular models. Step-by-step practical tips on how to perform and interpret assays for drug metabolism and toxicity assessment are provided, along with a comparison of different techniques available. It is a welcome addition to the literature at a time when interest is growing in cellular in vitro models for toxicology and pharmacology studies. Key Features * Meets the continuing demand for information in this field * Compares In Vitro techniques with other methods * Describes cell-culture methods used to investigate toxicity in cells derived from different organs * Includes contributions by leading experts in the field
