Toward faster tests to identify carcinogens and other environmental toxins
Chemical & Engineering News
After years of frustration with traditional methods for testing the toxicity of chemicals in the environment, scientists are working to adapt faster, simpler screening methods that do not require animals, now used by the pharmaceutical industry to identify potential drug candidates, according to an article [insert link here] scheduled for the August 6 issue of Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), ACSs weekly newsmagazine.
The article, written by C&EN Senior Editor Celia Henry Arnaud, explains that animal testing long has been the gold standard for environmental toxicology. But such tests take years to complete, cant always be confidently extrapolated to humans, and require the use of
