In some of these use classes, toxicity, at least to some organisms, is a desirable trait; in others, it is an undesirable side effect. Use classes are not composed entirely of synthetic chemicals; many natural products are isolated and are used for commercial and other purposes and must be subjected to the same toxicity testing as that required for synthetic chemicals. Examples of such natural products include the insecticide, pyrethrin, the clinical drug, digitalis, and the drug of abuse, cocaine.
8 INTRODUCTION TO TOXICOLOGY 8. Biomathematics and statistics relate to many areas of toxicology. They deal with data analysis, the determination of significance, and the formulation of risk estimates and predictive models. 9. Epidemiology, as it applies to toxicology, is of great importance as it deals with the relationship between chemical exposure and human disease in actual populations, rather than in experimental settings. D. Applied Toxicology. This includes the various aspects of toxicology as they apply in the field or the development of new methodology or new selective toxicants for early application in the field setting.
