Download Type: Adobe PDF

In this article Sandeep Modi, Michael Hughes, Andrew Garrow and Andrew White discuss limitations and strengths of in silico tools. Additionally, they look at different parameters that are necessary to make the best use of these tools, and also how to gain acceptance outside the modelling community and into the regulatory arena.

The authors propose an integrated workflow for combined use of data extraction, quantitative structure activity relationships and read-across methods. They discuss how the recent advances in this field can enable transition to a new paradigm of the discovery process, as exemplified by the Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century initiative.
