About this book
This volume examines immunohistochemical methods for investigating the toxicologic pathology of rodent and other animal tissues. Eleven comprehensive chapters provide pathologists and researchers in various sub-disciplines of toxicology with an authoritative review of the methods of immunohistochemical staining in various target tissues. Further, this book explores the tissue-, antigen-, and antibody-specific problems that may be encountered during the staining procedures and provides potential avenues for resolving various methodological issues. Special attention is paid to the latest enhancement procedures for antigen retrieval and visualization as well as to image analysis and antigen quantification. Written by leading researchers in toxicology and pathology, this book is a significant resource for toxicologists and pathologists working with rodents and other animal models. The information in Technical Aspects of Toxicological Immunohistochemistry is rounded out by the companion book, Toxicological Immunohistochemistry which examines mechanistic and predictive biomarkers for toxicological evaluation.
