Food and Chemical Toxicology
Food Chem Toxicol
Published/Hosted by Elsevier Science.
Food and Chemical Toxicology publishes original research reports and occasional interpretative reviews on the toxic effects, in animals or humans, of natural or synthetic chemicals occurring in the human environment. In addition to studies relating to food, water and other consumer products, papers on industrial and agricultural chemicals and pharmaceuticals are encouraged. Furthermore new areas such as safety evaluation of novel foods and biotechnologically derived products and inter-relationships between nutrition and toxicology are welcomed. The studies may address the physiological, biochemical or pathological changes induced by specific substances, techniques for assessing potential toxicity, including molecular biology or the mechanisms underlying toxic phenomena. All aspects of in vivo toxicology are covered, including systemic effects on specific organ systems, immune functions, carcinogenesis and teratogenesis. Papers reporting the toxicological examination of specific chemicals or consumer products are published irrespective of the positive or negative nature of the results, provided the tests and reporting meet current standards of adequacy. The Journal's editorial policy reflects the need for high-quality science in support of health and safety decisions. FCT is willing to consider papers of a more regulatory nature, provided they are part of a more general scientific analysis. On acceptance these papers will be published in a Regulatory Toxicology section. We recommend that before submitting a regulatory paper one of the editors of the journal is contacted.
