A critical assessment of the animal models and human clinical and population-based studies that highlight the physiological and biochemical differences between male-female responses to toxic substances. Focuses on the organ systems that are especially sensitive to toxicants and pollutants. Investigates the extent to which the pregnant state may alter a susceptibility to toxic substances, with particular emphasis on alterations in drug metabolism. Shows the significance such findings have for regulatory agencies concerned with environmental health.
