Toxicology Cases for the Clinical and Forensic Laboratory brings together carefully selected case studies to teach important principles relating to drug and toxin exposures. Each case study includes contemporary clinical and forensic toxicologist studies that include a comprehensive analytical and clinical approach to patient management and address overdoses from designer drugs, to NSAIDS, to opioids, to stimulants. These cases present a comprehensive, analytical and clinical approach to managing a drug overdose. This is a must-have reference for clinical and forensic laboratory scientists, along with toxicology and pathology residents who need to know aspects of both.
Brings together expert cases encompassing analytical toxicology, clinical medicine and basic science in a consolidated format
Presents unique and challenging cases in clinical laboratories contributed by experts in the field
Consolidated format that make concepts in toxicology easy to learn and teach
Key learning points highlighted with multiple choice questions
Residents and fellows in pathology and clinical chemistry, practicing pathologists and clinical chemists, clinical toxicologists, clinical laboratory scientists working in clinical and forensic toxicology laboratories

Dr. Hema Ketha completed her post-doctoral research training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN focusing on areas exploring the role of vitamin D physiology in bone and kidney diseases, protein purification and protein interactions, mouse model studies of bone disease and development, validation and clinical implementation of liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) analytical methods for vitamin D metabolic profiling. Then she pursued post-doctoral clinical training in clinical chemistry at the Mayo Clinic before joining the Department of Pathology at the University of Michigan.
She is currently a Technical Director, Toxicology and Mass Spectrometry, LabCorp, Burlington, NC. Her research interests are in clinical endocrinology, toxicology and clinical LC-MS/MS. She has won several awards from professional organizations including the AACC and ACLPS for her work in the areas of clinical chemistry and clinical mass spectrometry. She has research interests in areas of clinical endocrinology, toxicology and clinical LC-MS/MS. Additionally, she works on evaluating various immunoassays for current send-out esoteric analytes that can be validated and implemented at Michigan’s clinical laboratory. She has authored peer-reviewed publications and won several awards from professional organizations including the AACC and ACLPS for her work in the areas of clinical chemistry and clinical mass spectrometry.
