During the past two decades, research on animal, plant, and microbial toxins has expanded rapidly, and new and exciting information has appeared to clarify both the clinical and therapeutic aspects of intoxication and, even more impor tant, to help us understand more exactly the structure and the mode of action of toxins on a molecular basis. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of toxin research, it is of vital impor tance that workers specializing in its different aspects should make a particular effort to exchange and keep up with new developments in this rapidly-expanding field. This has been one of the main purposes of the series of international meetings that have been held over the past ten years. The increasing interest in the results of toxin research can be explained partly by the growing general preoccupation with pollution and its toxic effects, which means that more anq more specialists in other fields are finding it necessary to keep in touch with current research into naturally occurring toxins. The papers in these volumes were presented at the Fourth International Symposium on Animal, Plant and Microbial Toxins, organized by the Inter national Society on Toxicology, held in Tokyo in September, 1974. The editors have decided to include both original reports and review articles, arranged according to disciplines. Editing has been kept to the minimum necessary for adequate comprehension of the materials.

Natural Toxins presents the proceedings of the 6th International Symposium on Animal, Plant and Microbial Toxins, held in Uppsala, Sweden on August 1979. This book presents the methods for detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases that natural toxins cause. Organized into 17 parts encompassing 84 chapters, this compilation of papers begins with an overview of the embryonic development, structure, and function of the compound oral glands of venomous and non-venomous snakes in comparison with other exocrine glands. This text then examines the occupational hazards of snakebites in both agriculture and fishing in the Asian areas. Other chapters consider the toxicity and immunological relationships among venoms of several Agkistrodon species. This book discusses as well the characterization of cytotoxins and their mechanisms of action upon model lipid and cell membrane systems. The final chapter deals with neurotoxins as tools for the characterization of molecular components involved in nerve impulse propagation. This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, toxicologists, and pharmacologists.

Ciguatera poisoning is a worldwide problem whose impact has serious health and economic ramifications. Ciguatera Seafood Toxins provides an introduction and technical reference for this syndrome, covering topics such as medical approaches to treatment, legal avenues for those who become poisoned, and an overview of the areas where ciguatera is common. Other chapters in the text discuss research issues, such as assay systems for ciguatera, neurological effects of the disease, and light and electron microscopy studies of tissue exposed to ciguatera-type toxins. The book provides comprehensive coverage of the laboratory techniques used in the purification and molecular characterization of the toxins implicated in the disease, as well as a discussion of the genetic variability of one of the causative organisms (Gambierdiscus toxicus) in culture. This is a "must have" book for anyone concerned with ciguatera poisoning and its legal, scientific, and medical consequences.

The 9th World Congress on Animal, Plant and Microbial Toxins was sponsored by the International Society on Toxinology which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. The Society was organized to promote research into all aspects of natural toxins, and to help with the dissemination of knowledge. This book presents the most recent information on natural toxins from animal, plant and microbial origins and describes the state of research and clinical studies in the field. The material included is illustrated, referenced and fully indexed.

This book covers all aspects of toxicology, including toxic diseases of large animals, small animals, and exotic pets. It provides key information on how poisons affect the body, how the body responds to a foreign substance, how poisonings are diagnosed, and how poisonings are treated. Coverage includes every organ system of every species of animal with details on each body system's susceptibility to poison. Poisons affect animals differently depending on species, breed, age, gender, health status, and reproductive status. This resource addresses these differences, allowing the veterinarian to determine the class of toxicant, the mechanism of action, and the proper course of treatment. If confronted with an unknown poison, the information in this book will assist the veterinarian in formulating a list of potential poisons based on the clinical signs that the animal is exhibiting, and in choosing the appropriate tests to narrow the list to one or a few possible poisons. Most comprehensive toxicology book available Written in a user-friendly style that makes it easy to master the content Covers poisonings in both large and small domestic animals The Principles of Toxicology section provides comprehensive coverage of concepts & terminology, toxicokinetics, treatments, and regulatory information The Manifestations of Toxicoses section is devoted to differentiating between poisons based on lesions and clinical signs The Classes of Toxicants section offers detailed information on each poison, including sources, risk factors, pathophysiology, clinical signs and lesions, diagnostic testing, and treatment The author is board-certified in toxicology, and the contributors are all toxicologists and educators, ensuring authoritative, up-to-date clinical information

toxin is defined as a poison that is of animal, plant or microbial origin causing
disease when present even in low concentrations. Animal toxins are generally for
predation (snake and spider venoms) and defense (bee and wasp stings).

Biological toxins are grouped according to the source; animal, plant, unicellular
or one celled algae, and bacteria. Toxins are diverse and range from well-
defined single macromolecules (tetanus, diphtheria, botulinum toxins) to mixtures
