The October 2019 issue of Toxicological Sciences—Volume 171, Issue 2—features an array of leading toxicological research and is now available online.
Three Tox Spotlight articles are highlighted in Volume 171, Issue 2, covering the breadth of the toxicological sciences. “Widespread Epigenetic Changes to the Enhancer Landscape of Mouse Liver Induced by a Specific Xenobiotic Agonist Ligand of the Nuclear Receptor CAR” offers research involving computational toxicology and databases. Additionally, “Prenatal Dexamethasone Exposure Induced Alterations in Neurobehavior and Hippocampal Glutamatergic System Balance in Female Rat Offspring” reports developmental and reproductive toxicology findings. Finally, “Mechanisms of Chronic Fialuridine Hepatotoxicity as Revealed in Primary Human Hepatocyte Spheroids” is an emerging technologies, methods, and models piece.
In addition to the Tox Spotlight articles, this issue contains research involving clinical and translational toxicology, exposure sciences, neurotoxicology, and immunotoxicology, as well as articles on molecular, biochemical, and systems toxicology. Two letters to the editor—both discussing diamide insecticides—are also featured in the October edition of ToxSci.
The mission of Toxicological Sciences is to publish a broad spectrum of impactful research in the field of toxicology.
