Toxicologic pathology integrates toxicology and the disciplines within it (such as biochemistry, pharmacodynamics and risk assessment) to pathology and its related disciplines (such as physiology, microbiology, immunology, and molecular biology).
Fundamentals of Toxicologic Pathology Second Edition updates the information presented in the first edition, including five entirely new chapters addressing basic concepts in toxicologic pathology, along with color photomicrographs that show examples of specific toxicant-induced diseases in animals. The current edition also includes comparative information that will prove a valuable resource to practitioners, including diagnostic pathologists and toxicologists.

Matthew A. Wallig
Matthew A. Wallig, DVM, Ph.D., DACVP, is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Pathobiology, College of Veterinary Medicine, the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, as well as the Division of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Illinois. His research has focused on the chemoprotective properties and mechanisms of phytochemicals in the diet, in particular those in cruciferous vegetables, soy, and tomatoes. His current interests have expanded to include defining morphologic parameters for diagnostic quantitative ultrasound in pancreatitis, pancreatic and hepatic neoplasia, metastatic disease, and chronic hepatic diseases such as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Matt has served as an Editor for the last two editions of the Fundamentals of Toxicologic Pathology and Haschek and Rousseaux’s Handbook of Toxicologic Pathology.
