Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Forensic toxicology currently faces the challenges of great analytical complexity and of increasingly sophisticated interpretative models of laboratory parameters; this implies a continued improvement in the investigative methodology, for the evaluation of xenobiotics both in living and in post-mortem samples. This Special Issue of Toxic explores all areas of scientific research concerning traditional and emerging substances of abuse, with their forensic and clinical implications, including both analytical approaches within different samples of human body, and their impact on human health and behavior, such as driving impairment and fitness to work. Interdisciplinary and integrated forensic toxicology research which meets these requirements are welcomed by this Special Issue.
Case studies concerning intoxication from substance abuse and overdoses of psychotropic drugs are welcome. Other topics of interest include translational, pharmacogenetic and pharmacogenomic research, relating to substances of abuse and psychotropic drugs, in living people and post-mortem forensic casuistry; driving under the influence of alcohol and other substances of abuse; drug-facilitated sexual assault; emerging studies of postmortem biochemistry; in-depth examinations of death from intentional poisoning; and suicidal and homicidal deaths induced by drugs and substances of abuse.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
