Drug and Disease Information: Toxicology Data & Literature

Toxicology Data & Literature

Have a look at the information on the right.

1. Perform a search in ToxNet. Search for a particular medicine by chemical name. Tip: use the Search All Databases search field to search all databases simultaneously.

  • How many records are retrieved for each of the ToxNet databases?
  • Read the information on the Database Description Support Page. Which database would you use to find information on possible adverse effects in nursing infants?
  • What is the chemical structure of your medicine?
  • What is the therapeutic use of your medicine? Tip: check out the classification codes and/or notes of the ChemIDplus full record. 
  • Export relevant references to RefWorks.

2. Perform additional searches:

  • Conduct a search on a similar drug in the same class of drugs. Tip: try one of the drug names from the PubMed excercise.
  • Conduct a search on the drug class.
