C. D. E. Involves a sudden onset of symptoms. Symptoms typically last less than 24 hours. Results in cellular damage that is irreversible. The organism usually recovers from the adverse effects. May involve local or systemic toxic responses. 2. With this form of toxicity it is often difficult to establish a cause-and-effect relationship: A. B. C. D. E. Acute toxicity Delayed toxicity Immediate toxicity Local toxicity Systemic toxicity 3. Toxicokinetics is the study of all but which one of the following?

For example, a highly technical mechanism of action classification may be meaningless to a general nonscientific audience. Ultimately, the value of any classification system is its ability to adequately convey comparative, relative, or absolute information. Table 2–1. Some of the ways commonly used to classify toxicants Toxicological Concepts Determination of Toxicity Since toxicity is the state of being poisonous, it is imperative that cause-and-effect relationships between substances (in this case, suspected toxicants and the resultant toxicity) be established.

A typical cell membrane is about 10 nm (10 one-billionths of a meter) thick. ” In the middle of the phospholipid bilayer is a region where adjacent lipid tails are located. The phosphate heads are found on the inner and outer surfaces of the cell membrane where these regions are exposed to water, the ubiquitous solvent found in living organisms. The phospholipid bilayer forms a semipermeable membrane that surrounds the cell. The membrane is termed semipermeable since it permits some molecules to move across, while at the same time 46 Essentials of Environmental Toxicology Figure 4–1.
