||This is the
fifth of 10 lectures on toxicologic epidemiology. It has been prepared to provide the
students with three historical epidemics for the purpose of illustrating the toxicologic
side of epidemiology. The linkage between epidemiology and toxicology was introduced
briefly in Lecture 1, and further conceptualized in the
last three lectures. It is thought that for some toxicologist and epidemiologist
practitioners, perhaps the use of historical cases is the most direct approach to
convincing them about the intimate relationship between the two professions.
of the 10 lectures are: (1) Toxicology and
Epidemiology; (2) Public Health and Risk Assessment; (3) Toxicology and Risk Assessment; (4) Epidemiology and Risk Assessment; (5) Toxicologic Side of Epidemiology; (6) Epidemiologic Side of Toxicology; (7) Human Exposure Assessment I; (8) Human Exposure Assessment II; (9) Characterization of Health Risk; and (10) Toxicologic Epidemiology.
