Renal Disposition and Nephrotoxicity of Xenobiotics
This volume summarizes the current knowledge about the mechanisms of the renal handling of xenobiotic metabolites and the mechanism by which xenobiotics produce nephrotoxicity. It focuses on three areas - the assessment of xenobiotic-induced nephrotoxicity, the renal disposition of xenobiotics, and the bioactivation and nephrotoxicity of xenobiotics. The authors represent several fields of specialization, and the multidisciplinary approach taken should enhance the understanding of the renal disposition and nephrotoxicity of xenobiotics.
