Example text

Distinguishing a “toxin” from a “toxicant” is not always easy. ” Thus, although technically incorrect, many physicians and others involved in the diagnosis and treatment of poisonings often use the term “toxin” to refer to any toxic substance, regardless of origin. Toxic agents may also be classified in terms of their physical state (gas, dust, liquid, size, eg, nanotoxicology), their chemical stability or reactivity (explosive, flammable, oxidizer), general chemical structure (aromatic amine, halogenated hydrocarbon, etc), or poisoning potential (extremely toxic, very toxic, slightly toxic, etc).

Repeated exposure is divided into 3 categories: subacute, subchronic, and chronic. Subacute exposure refers to repeated exposure to a chemical for 1 month or less, subchronic for 1 to 3 months, and chronic for more than 3 months, although usually this refers to studies with at least 1 year of repeated dosing. These 3 categories of repeated exposure can be by any route, but most often they occur by the oral route, with the chemical added directly to the diet. In human exposure situations, the frequency and duration of exposure are usually not as clearly defined as in controlled animal studies, but many of the same terms are used to describe general exposure situations.

Knowledge about the toxicological effects of a compound affects consumer products, drugs, manufacturing processes, waste cleanup, regulatory action, civil disputes, and broad policy decisions. The expanding influence of toxicology on societal issues is accompanied by the responsibility to be increasingly sensitive to the ethical, legal, and social implications of toxicological research and testing. The convergence of multiple elements has highlighted the evolving ethical dynamics of toxicology.
