Journal to Focus on Inhalation Toxicity: Submit Articles by December 15
The journal Applied In Vitro Toxicology is accepting manuscript submissions for a special issue on alternative approaches for inhalation toxicity testing. Submissions must be received by December 15.
Inhalation toxicity testing provides information for hazard labeling and risk management of chemicals when there is potential for exposure of the respiratory tract. Regulatory test guidelines typically describe rodent tests. However, work is underway to develop reliable non-animal approaches for assessing inhalation toxicity that will provide more human-relevant data and a better understanding of the mechanism of toxicity. This special issue of Applied In Vitro Toxicology will explore the regulatory and non-regulatory needs for inhalation toxicity data and the alternative approaches that may be used to meet those needs.
More information about the special issue is available at http://www.liebertpub.com/cfp/implementing-alternative-approaches-for-inhalation-toxicity-/77/. Questions about the special issue should be emailed to guest editor Amy Clippinger at email@example.com.
