Toxicology Special Interest Group
The Toxicology Interest Group’s purpose is to increase awareness of recent developments in areas such as new street drugs, new contaminants of street drugs, novel therapeutic agents, and improvements in interpretation of clinically-relevant results; to provide real-world experience with clinical toxicology and TDM-specific issues, to assist generalists in interpretation and analysis of these topics; and to deepen basic knowledge of pharmacology, toxicology and analytical issues, and define key and novel areas of particular importance to daily functioning of toxicology labs.
This interest group organizes a session at the annual meeting where individuals present recent cases and developments. This provides an open format to allow for free discussion and sharing of ideas. Topics have included: identification of adulterated urine samples, pharmacogenomics-related drug interactions, contamination of street drugs, and new methods to identify abused drugs, new and emerging drugs, drug-drug interactions and drug toxicities.
