Hayes’ Principles and Methods of Toxicology has long been established as a reliable reference to the concepts, methodologies, and assessments integral to toxicology. The new sixth edition has been revised and updated while maintaining the same high standards that have made this volume a benchmark resource in the field. With new authors and new chapters that address the advances and developments since the fifth edition, the book presents everything toxicologists and students need to know to understand hazards and mechanisms of toxicity, enabling them to better assess risk. The book begins with the four basic principles of toxicology—dose matters, people differ, everything transforms, and timing is crucial. The contributors discuss various agents of toxicity, including foodborne, solvents, crop protection chemicals, radiation, and plant and animal toxins. They examine various methods for defining and measuring toxicity in a host of areas, including genetics, carcinogenicity, toxicity in major body systems, and the environment. This new edition contains an expanded glossary reflecting significant changes in the field. New topics in this edition include: The importance of dose–response Systems toxicology Food safety The humane use and care of animals Neurotoxicology The comprehensive coverage and clear writing style make this volume an invaluable text for students and a one-stop reference for professionals.

Erkrankungen durch Pilze beanspruchen in der täglichen Praxis ei nen breiten und ständig wachsenden Raum. Man hört und liest von einem unaufbaItsamen Vormarsch der Pilze und ihrer zunehmenden Gefährdung für den Menschen. Diese Behauptung gilt sicher nicht so allgemein für alle Erkrankungen durch Pilze. Jedoch müssen wir langsam lernen, die Gefahr, die von diesen Erregern ausgeht, richtig einzuschätzen. Wenn man heute von einer wachsenden Bedeutung der Pilzerkrankungen spricht, so sind in erster Linie Mykosen als Er krankungen durch parasitäre Pilze gemeint. Die Kenntnis der Mykosen ist für den praktisch tätigen Arzt ebenso wichtig wie die Kenntnis von Erkrankungen durch Bakterien oder Viren. Auf den ersten Blick erscheint dieses Gebiet der Mikrobiolo gie sicher außerordentlich verwirrend. Unser Anliegen ist es daher, den mykologisch Interessierten nicht durch eine Vielfalt unüber schaubarer Begriffe zu verunsichern und ihm die Unzulänglichkeit seines Tuns immer wieder zu beweisen, sondern es geht uns darum, Hilfen zu geben bei der Diagnostik, der Therapie und den prophy laktischen Maßnahmen in der Mykologie. Am Beginn der Mikrobiologie stand ohne Zweifel die Mykologie. Vor der Entdeckung der Bakterien wurden bereits 1836 von Remark in den Krusten des Favus verzweigte Fäden gesehen, die er zu die sem Zeitpunkt jedoch wohl nicht als Ursache für die Erkrankung an sah. 1839 erkannte dann Schönlein den Zusammenhang zwischen Pilzfäden und der Entstehung des Favus. Virchow führte schon den Begriff der Dermatomykosen in die Humanpathologie ein. Die My kologie erhielt jedoch ihre entscheidenden Impulse und Bedeutung durch die Arbeiten von Sabouraud.
