About these proceedings


This volume contains the main papers presented at the 1995 EUROTOX Congress, Prague, Czech Republic, August 27 - 30, 1995. Cellular and subcellular models are used to improve our knowledge about mechanistic aspects of toxicological effects, and ultimately this deepened knowledge may serve to further improve our ability to cope with toxicological processes in man. This is reflected in symposia and workshops on intercellular communication, functional teratogenicity, risk assessment of heterocyclic amines in food, clinical toxicology of peptides and proteins, human immunotoxicity and individual susceptibility to occupational toxicants. Progresses in the fields of renal toxicology, metal antidotes and free radicals as well as increased awareness of ecotoxicological problems and effects in Central Europe are also discussed. A highlight of the Congress was certainly the first Gerhard Zbinden Memorial Lecture on alterations of cell signalling in chemical toxicity.
