Journal of Toxiocology and Environmental Health (JTEH)

The Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health (JTEH) is an authoritative journal featuring strictly refereed original research in the field of environmental toxicology. The research is in general as well as in special interest fields such as target organ toxicities, immunotoxicology, risk assessment, carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, ecotoxicology, environmental factors affecting health, and aquatic toxicology. Emphasis is placed on on the toxicological effects of natural and anthropogenic environmental pollutants and their action on both intact organisms and in vitro systems. The attention of JTEH is being placed on the results of epidemiological studies of select groups of workers in exposed populations. Also published are refereed critical reviews in scientific areas of current toxicological interest.  Dr. Sam Kacew is editor in chief of the journal and is also Associate Director, Toxicology, of the McLaughlin Centre.


The McLaughlin Centre for Population Health Risk Assessment and Dr. Daniel Krewski were involved in a number of special issues published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health Part A & B. A summary of each special issue is available.
