Chemical Toxicology

Chemical toxicology is a subspecialty of toxicology that focuses on the structure of chemical agents and how it affects their mechanism of action on living organisms. It is a multidisciplinary field that includes computational and synthetic chemistry, in addition to people who specialize in the fields of proteomics, metabolomics, drug discovery, drug metabolism, bioinformatics, analytical chemistry, biological chemistry and molecular epidemiology. It depends on technological advances to help understand the chemical components of toxicology more systematically.

The goal of toxicity evaluation is to identify adverse effects of a substance. Adverse effects depend on two main factors; routes of exposure and dose. To determine dose, substances are tested in both acute and chronic models. Generally, different types of experiments are conducted to decide whether a substance causes cancer and to examine other forms of toxicity. Factors that influence chemical toxicity are Dosage, Route of exposure and Other factors such as Species, Age, Sex, Health, Environment, Individual characteristics.
