Your Solution to Research in Toxicology

By: , Posted on: March 9, 2016


With the upcoming Society of Toxicology Annual Conference just around the corner, we thought it would be a good opportunity to share Elsevier’s solutions to your research in toxicology.

This year, the focus areas for the conference program are:

  • Advances in Neurotoxicology
  • Developmental Toxicity: Mechanisms and Evaluation
  • Health and Environmental Impacts of Man-Made and Naturally Released Toxicants
  • Molecular Toxicology: Mechanistic Insights and Hazard Assessment
  • Recent Advances in Safety Assessment
  • Toxicity of Metals

nutraceuticalsAs the first-of-its-kind reference book detailing the use and potential toxic effects of nutraceuticals and dietary supplements, Nutraceuticals: Efficacy, Safety and Toxicity brings together all current knowledge regarding nutraceuticals and their potential toxic effects, providing an introduction to nutraceuticals, herbal medicines, ayurvedic medicines, prebiotics, probiotics, and adaptogens, along with their use and specific applications

Edited by the renowned Dr. Ramesh C. Gupta, Professor and Head of Toxicology Department at Murray State University, this work is grants an overview of the current state-of-the-science of nutraceuticals, their use and applications, and known adverse effects, along with providing effective tools to evaluate the potential toxicity of any nutraceutical.

drug-like propertiesAn essential ADMET (absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination, toxicology) resource for selecting and advancing high quality drug candidates, Drug-Like Properties, 2nd Edition: Concepts, Structure Design and Methods from ADME to Toxicity Optimization explores physiochemical properties, including solubility and permeability, before exploring how compounds are absorbed, distributed, and metabolized safely and stably.

Authors Li Di, an Associate Research Fellow at Pfizer and Edward Kerns, a consultant for the National Institutes of Health cover a wide variety of current methods for the screening (high throughput), diagnosis (medium throughput) and in-depth (low throughput) analysis of drug properties for process and product improvement.
