Hepatotoxicity: Symptoms, Management and Health Implications


, ,

Series: Hepatology Research and Clinical Developments
BISAC: MED114000

Over the past few years, epidemiological studies have revealed that there is an increase of life threatening liver diseases worldwide. It becomes increasingly clear that developments in thisfield are moving so rapidly toward the creation of new drugs against these maladies. Numerous research articles and books have been published on various aspects of toxicities, symptoms, managements and health implications of the liver. Consequently, a catalogue of collective information of toxicities, various features of natural products, and remedies for the prevention of toxicities is needed. This book deals with the toxicities in organs like the liver and the role natural products have in the preventing these ailments. It also analyzes trends in the processing of natural products by using nanotechnology and their health implications.

The main purpose of this book is to exhibit relevant, modern information on hepatotoxicity, its symptoms, and treatments presented by internationally recognized experts in the field. Therefore, it is our belief that this book has covered some of the most interesting aspects of research in liver diseases and provides a trustworthy source of current information in this area of research which should prove useful to the scientists interested in this discipline throughout the world. This collection will interest a variety of other scientific disciplines including toxicology, genetics, medicine and pharmacology, as well as drug and food sciences. We hope that our readers will find this volume to be a delightful addition to their personal libraries, laboratories and offices. Additionally, it can be used as a required or recommended text for related courses taught at colleges and universities levels.
