[e-drug] Pharmaceutical toxicology books (2)

E-DRUG: Pharmaceutical toxicology books (2)

Dear John Mponda

The answer to your question might depend upon the depth of teaching in 
toxicology that you wish to give. Do you wish to cover the basic 
principles of toxicology, or toxicology testing in clinical trials, or 
the management of poisoned patients, or all of these and/or more?

One of the key and in-depth texts is:
