Toxicology Library Function
The Toxicology Library contains toxicology tutorials; clinical conundrums; analysis of drugs/antidotes/envenomings and applied clinical context of basic pharmacology and physiology.
Note: A toxicant is the umbrella term for any toxic substance. A toxin is a toxicant produced by a living organism (generally metabolic products that have evolved as defense mechanisms). All toxins are toxicants, but not all toxicants are toxins. In popular usage toxicant more commonly (though inaccurately) refers to man-made (synthetic) toxic substances e.g. pesticides.
