About this Research Topic
The goal of this Research Topic is to lead the cutting-edge discussion on the recent research and achievement in understanding the mechanism of toxicities of conventional and emerging hazardous substances and the related antidote and detoxification mechanism and methods. The article collection welcomes in-depth and novel discoveries and reviews of toxicity mechanisms of traditional hazards, as well as pioneering explorations of emerging hazardous substances. Instead of relatively simple mechanisms, emphasis will be put on the synergistic or accumulative or even heritable comprehensive/complex influences of these dangerous substances on animal organs, tissues, and cellular or subcellular levels physiologically and biochemically. We welcome interdisciplinary works about developing innovative methods and devices for detecting and remediating hazardous substances and related toxic effects, respectively. Manuscripts on the following subtopics are encouraged to be submitted to the Research Topic:
• Toxicity and mechanism of dangerous substances such as heavy metals, metalloids, biotoxins, nanomaterials, veterinary drugs, pesticides, and other/emerging hazardous substances.
• Prevention and treatment methods for heavy metals, metalloids, biotoxins, nanomaterials, veterinary drugs, pesticides, and other/emerging hazardous substances, as well as the mechanisms of protective agents.
• Toxicokinetic and new detection methods of heavy metals, metalloids, biotoxins, nanomaterials, veterinary drugs, pesticides, and other/emerging hazardous substances.
Keywords: Metals, Metalloids, Biotoxins, Nanomaterials, Veterinary Drugs, Pesticides, Toxicity, Protection
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
