Drug-induced toxicity is a big issue in the clinical practice. Most drugs may cause adverse drug reactions, in small portion of patients. Understanding the mechanism could help us to predict, prevent, and treat the drug-induced toxicity. Although lots of researches have been done in this field, unfortunately, very few mechanisms are known. In recent couple decades, different omics are used to investigate the mechanism of drug-induced toxicity, for example, genomics and proteomics. These omics could provide us the information at gene and protein level, respectively.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
