Specifically focused to meet the needs of toxicologists, Toxicology Abstracts (a ProQuest "Environmental Sciences & Pollution Management" subfile) covers issues from social poisons and substance abuse to natural toxins, from legislation and recommended standards to environmental issues. Surveying the literature for toxicology studies of industrial and agricultural chemicals, household products, pharmaceuticals, and myriad other substances, each issue publishes information concerning the in vivo effects of toxic substances.

Major areas of coverage include: Pharmaceuticals, Food, Additives, and Contaminants, Agro- chemicals, Cosmetics, Toiletries, and Household Products, Industrial Chemicals, Metals, Toxins and Other Natural Substances, Social Poisons and Drug Abuse, Polycyclic Hydrocarbons, Nitrosamines and Related Compounds, Radiation and Radioactive Materials, Methodology, Legislation and Recommended Standards.
