Toxicology Applications

Application of methodology and principles of toxicology to prevent adverse health effects from drug candidates. To evaluate the safety of potential drug candidates in the drug development process is the primary objective of toxicology studies. This can be accomplished by using relevant animal models and validated procedures. The ultimate goal is to translate the animal model responses into an understanding of the risk for human subjects. To this end, the toxicologist must be aware of the international guidelines for safety evaluation, as well as traditional and nontraditional toxicology models.  The typical toxicology profile consists of safety pharmacology, acute and subchronic toxicology, chronic toxicology, absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion studies, genetic toxicology, reproductive and developmental toxicology and an evaluation of carcinogenic potential.
