Newswise — The April 2020 issue of the Society of Toxicology’s official journal, Toxicological Sciences, features leading research in toxicology, including several manuscripts covering emerging technologies, methods, and models, as well as investigations in environmental toxicology and molecular, biochemical, and systems toxicology.
Three featured, or “Tox Spotlight,” articles are printed in Volume 174, Issue 2:
- “Mechanism-Driven Read-Across of Chemical Hepatotoxicants Based on Chemical Structures and Biological Data”
- “Paternal ∆9-Tetrahydrocannabinol Exposure Prior to Mating Elicits Deficits in Cholinergic Synaptic Function in the Offspring”
- “A Targeted Metabolomics-Based Assay Using Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Cardiomyocytes Identifies Structural and Functional Cardiotoxicity Potential”
A Contemporary Review article, which “provide expert analysis of important and emerging areas in the field of toxicology,” also is published in the April 2020 edition and discusses “Novel Therapeutic Approaches against Acetaminophen-Induced Liver Injury and Acute Liver Failure.”
Finally, Volume 174, Issue 2, also features research on biotransformation, toxicokinetics, and pharmacokinetics, as well as regulatory science, risk assessment, and decision-making.
The mission of Toxicological Sciences is to publish a broad spectrum of impactful research in the field of toxicology. ToxSci: Your science. Your journal.
