Written by a variety of experts in the field, recent and rapid advances in technologies and associated changes in regulatory guidance are discussed.

Select topics include:

  • Evolution of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies and the impact on toxicologic pathology.
  • Current approaches to carcinogenicity testing.
  • Predicting drug-drug interactions.
  • Current understanding of idiosyncratic drug reaction.
  • Assessing cardiovascular risks beyond QT interval.
