Issue 1 now online!

Graphical AbstractThe front cover of issue 1 features artwork by Yanjun Zhang from Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. With his colleagues, Yanjun identifies more sensitive indexes for evaluating nephrotoxicity. By using gentamicin (100 mg kg−1), etimicin (100 mg kg−1) and amphotericin B (4 mg kg−1) to establish renal injury models in rats, they collected information using ultra-performance liquid chromatography quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry in the screening stage.

Issue 5 now online!

Graphical AbstractThe front cover of issue 5 features artwork by  Shao-Chen Sun from Nanjing Agricultural University. With his colleagues, Shao-Chen explored possible mechanisms for the toxic effects of ZEN on pig oocytes. They cultured porcine oocytes to maturation in media with different ZEN concentrations (5–30 μM), after which they analyzed oocyte oxidative stress status, autophagy, early apoptosis, and epigenetic modifications by immunofluorescence, quantitative real-time PCR analysis and western blot approaches.

The RSC Research Fund

The RSC research fund was brought into existence to provide assistance to members of the Royal Society of Chemistry conducting their own research by the provision of grants.  The Research fund has just been re-launched, doubling the previous maximum value to £4000.

This award is available for those at a university or college to purchase chemicals and equipment.  The Research funds are awarded by the Research Fund Working Group and must adhere to a guideline of rules and criteria including that no portion of the grant may be used for personal expenses and the main body of work must be undertaken by the applicant themselves.

To find out more about the RSC Research Fund, please visit http://rsc.li/research-fund.

Issue 4 of Toxicology Research: free to read online now!

With the new toxicology journal from the RSC well underway, it is time to announce that Issue 4 is now here and free to access.

Even without posting about it, the new issue would be hard to miss with a cover image Andy Warhol would have been proud of.  In homage to the painter of “hamburger” and “soup cans” I am simply calling it “rats”.

This delightfully colourful image was provided by Dr Will Redfern to demonstrate his work on repeat dose toxicity.  The paper demonstrates how value adding functional data can be gathered without the need for additional animals.  This topic will be of great interest to many researchers regardless of discipline.

White ratsFor the more squeamish amongst you, don’t worry, this issues focuses on more than just rats and replication.  If rodents aren’t your thing why not read the article on PM25 – induced inflammatory lung disease or a potential mechanism for liver injury due to alcohol consumption and hyperglycaemia.

 

Issue 4 and the previous issues can be reached here and all articles published in 2012 and 2013 are free to access.

 

Like what you read?  Submit your work to Toxicology Research and be part of the new multi-disciplinary journal covering the best research in both fundamental and applied aspects of toxicology.
