    Veterinary Toxicology, 2nd edition is a unique single reference that teaches the basic principles of veterinary toxicology and builds upon these principles to offer an essential clinical resource for those practicing in the field. This reference book is thoroughly updated with new chapters and the latest coverage of topics that are essential to research veterinary toxicologists, students. Providing a thorough and up–to–date overview of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR), a ligand–activated transcription factor that mediates the induction of drug–metabolizing enzymes and diverse toxicities caused by dioxins, The AH Receptor in Biology and Toxicology is essential reading for toxicologists, chemists, biologists.

Dioxins are called persistent organic pollutants (POPs), meaning they take a long time to break down once they are in the environment.; Dioxins are highly toxic and can cause cancer, reproductive and developmental problems, damage to the immune system, and can interfere with hormones.

R.A. Young, in Encyclopedia of Toxicology (Third Edition), Toxicokinetics. Dioxins are highly lipid soluble and are readily absorbed via most routes of exposure.

Dioxins accumulate in adipose tissue and in hepatic lipid stores. There are, of course, some quantitative differences among the various routes and for the different dioxin congeners.

Like all chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins, the tetrachlorinated isomer 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is stable to heat, acids, and is virtually insoluble in water (2 × 10 −4 ppm) only slightly soluble in fats (44 ppm in lard oil), and more soluble in hydrocarbons ( ppm in benzene), and at its most soluble in chlorinated organic solvents ( ppm in ortho Cited by: 3.

This chapter begins with a brief summary of evaluations from several governmental bodies on the toxicity of chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (CDDs) and related compounds, including chlorodibenzofurans (CDFs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) with dioxin-like activity, and on the potential human health effects from exposure to these compounds.

For brevity, these compounds will be referred to in. Dioxins are mainly byproducts of industrial practices. They are produced through a variety of incineration processes, including improper municipal waste incineration and burning of trash, and can be released into the air during natural processes, such as forest fires and volcanoes.

Almost every living creature has been exposed to dioxins or dioxin-like compounds (DLCs). The core of the book presents. What is known about the toxicology of the herbicides used in greatest quantities in Vietnam.

What is known about assessing exposure to herbicides and dioxin. What can be determined from the wide range of epidemiological studies conducted by different authorities. Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins, dibenzofurans, and dioxin-like PCBs are structurally related aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR)-active compounds, exhibiting the same specific toxic mode of action.

Explores the latest science on dioxins and other POPs, and their impact on human health. Now in its third edition, Dioxins and Health is the most respected reference of its kind, presenting the latest scientific findings on dioxins, dibenzofurans, polychlorinated biphenyls and related compounds, and their impact on human health.

The TEF is the ratio of the toxicity of one of the compounds in this category to the toxicity of the two most toxic compounds in the category, which are each assigned a TEF of 1: 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (commonly referred to as dioxin) and 1,2,3,7,8-pentachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin.

Executive summary. This ecological risk assessment is a component of the National Dioxins Program initiated by the Australian Government to assess the impact of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDF) and "dioxin-like" coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) on Australian native fauna exposed in aquatic and terrestrial environments to ambient levels.The book fully examines the many toxicological effects—including immunological, neurological, developmental, dermatological, and cardiological—these chemicals have on health.

This Third Edition has been greatly expanded with the latest research findings on dioxins and related compounds. Moreover, it now includes coverage of other persistent.The dioxin compound that is considered most toxic of all is tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, or TCDD, which is the one that was released in the Seveso disaster.

TCDD is a carcinogen, or cancer.
