Research Aspects in Clinical Toxicology

  • Dag Jacobsen
Conference paper
Part of the Archives of Toxicology book series (TOXICOLOGY, volume 15)


Clinical toxicology is an old discipline with a young an still immature academic impact. Over the last two decades, however, much research information has been available with better and better scientific quality. Though most of the documentation is still based on case reports, their quality has improved and some multicenter studies have also been performed in which different treatment procedures have been evaluated.
