Some of the most dynamic and exciting aspects of dermatology are, in part, presented in the third edition of Dermatotoxicology. The contents of this book point to the future, include the current base of knowledge, and reflect the vitality of the specialty.
In the new edition, four new chapters have been added: "Immunological Aspects of Immediate and Delayed Skin Hypersensitivity," "Delayed Contact Hypersensitivity in the Vagina and Skin of the Guinea Pig," "Ocular Safety Evaluation," and "Porphyria Cutanea Tarda." The report on contact pustulogens included in the second edition was deleted. The bibliographies are extensive and current; most of the retained chapters have been updated with new information. These changes and additions have improved the book.
For those readers wanting to learn about cutaneous irritation, allergy, pharmacology, percutaneous absorption, and other aspects of dermatotoxicology, their purposes will be well rewarded by reading and studying this most informative and probing book.
