Chemicals Other Resources

ATSDR
Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry: A collection of resources with information about toxic substances including ToxFAQs, Toxicological Profiles, Interaction Profiles and a Priority List of Hazardous Substances.
CCRIS
Chemical Carcinogenesis Research Information System: A factual database sponsored by the National Cancer Institute. It contains evaluated data and information derived from both short- and long-term bioassays on over 8,000 chemicals. Studies relate to carcinogens, mutagens, tumor promoters, cocarcinogens, metabolites, and inhibitors of carcinogens.
ChEBI
Chemical Entities of Biological Interest: A dictionary of molecular entities focused on small chemical compounds.
ChemIDplus®
A resource providing access to structure and nomenclature information for the identification of chemical substances cited in NLM® databases.
DrugBank
A resource that combines detailed drug (i.e., chemical, pharmacological and pharmaceutical) data with comprehensive drug target (i.e., sequence, structure, and pathway) information.
ECOTOX
ECOTOXicology Database: A resource for single chemical toxicity information for aquatic and terrestrial life.
EPA
US Environmental Protection Agency: The mission of the US Environmental Protection Agency is to protect human health and the environment. It provides environmental science, research, education, regulation, and assessment efforts.
GENE-TOX
Genetic Toxicology Data Bank: A database created by the US Environmental Protection Agency with genetic toxicology test results on thousands of chemicals. In the field of genetic toxicology, selected mutagenicity assay systems and the source literature are reviewed by work panels of scientific experts for each of the test systems under evaluation, and the GENE-TOX data bank is the product of these data review activities.
Haz-Map
An occupational toxicology database that links jobs to hazardous job tasks which are linked to occupational diseases and their symptoms.
Household Products Database
Health and safety information on household products.
HSDB®
Hazardous Substances Data Bank: A comprehensive, scientifically reviewed, factual database containing records for toxic or potentially toxic chemicals. It contains extensive information in such areas as toxicity, environmental fate, human exposure, chemical safety, waste disposal, emergency handling, and regulatory requirements.
MeSH®
NLM® Medical Subject Headings®: The National Library of Medicine®'s hierarchical controlled vocabulary thesaurus. Components of this vocabulary are used for the CTD chemical and disease vocabularies.
NIEHS
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences: The mission of the NIEHS is to reduce the burden of human illness and dysfunction from environmental causes by understanding each of these elements and how they interrelate. The NIEHS achieves its mission through multidisciplinary biomedical research programs, prevention and intervention efforts, and communication strategies that encompass training, education, technology transfer, and community outreach.
NLM® Toxicogenomics
A compendium of Internet resources related to toxicogenomics.
NTP
National Toxicology Program: NTP was established in 1978 by the US Department of Health and Human Services to coordinate toxicological testing programs; strengthen the science base in toxicology; develop and validate improved testing methods; and provide information about potentially toxic chemicals to health regulatory and research agencies, the scientific and medical communities and the public.
PubChem
Provides information on the biological activities of small molecules.
SRS
Substance Registry System: A resource providing information on substances and how they are represented in the US Environmental Protection Agency regulations and information systems.
TOXLINE®
A bibliographic database covering the biochemical, pharmacological, physiological, and toxicological effects of drugs and other chemicals.
TOXNET®
Databases on toxicology, hazardous chemicals, environmental health, and toxic releases.
