Background Lesions in Laboratory Animals might be a useful relief to pathologists desiring to acknowledge historical past and incidental lesions whereas studying slides taken from laboratory animals in acute and protracted toxicity reports, or whereas analyzing unique species in a diagnostic laboratory. It offers transparent descriptions and illustrations of nearly all of historical past lesions more likely to be encountered. a number of the lesions coated are strange and will be improper for treatment-related findings in preclinical toxicity studies.
The Atlas has been ready with contributions from skilled toxicological pathologists who're experts in all the laboratory animal species lined and who've released greatly in those areas.
- over six hundred high-definition, most appropriate colour pictures of heritage lesions present in rats, mice, canines, minipigs, non-human primates, hamsters, guinea pigs and rabbits
- a separate bankruptcy on lesions within the reproductive platforms of all laboratory animals written by means of Dr Dianne Creasy, a global professional on testicular lesions in laboratory animals
- a bankruptcy on universal artifacts that could be saw in histological glass slides
- extensive references to every lesion described
- aging lesions encountered in all laboratory animal species, relatively in rats in mice that are used for carcinogenicity studies
