Briefly define the following terms: a. Toxicology b. Poison c. Genomics d. Proteomics e. Metabolomics 2. Toxicity has been described as a cascade of events initiated by exposure to a harmful chemical.
They may include measurement of growth competence, apoptosis, and/or necrosis, incorporation of radioactive precursors into essential cellular constituents such as RNA, DNA, and protein and specialized cellular functions. 1. 4 Use of Stem Cells Although the use of human stem cells is still controversial, their use in biomedical research is increasing. At the same time, stem cells from surrogate animals have long been used in biomedical, including toxicological, research. Probably the best example is the use of cultured mouse embryonic stem cells for generation of “knockout” mice.
These aspects, concerned with the formulation of laws, and regulations authorized by laws, are intended to minimize the effect of toxic chemicals on human health and the environment. 1. Legal aspects are the formulation of laws and regulations and their enforcement. In the United States, enforcement falls under such government agencies as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Similar government agencies exist in many other countries.
