The book is devoted to the study of the endocrine-related effects on human health with special reference to carcinogenesis, and to the assessment of carcinogenic risk. After providing basic information at the general, cellular and molecular levels, the contents focus on the paradigm of Biologically Based Risk Assessment, as developed form Physiologically-Based Toxicokinetic Models. The analysis of this material is proposed as the novel parameters for developing Biologically Based Models of Carcinogenesis, considered to be more relevant to risk assessment than traditional approaches. This data appears unique in an important and rapidly developing field.
