Clinical and Forensic Toxicology
Clinical toxicology involves the toxic effects of not only therapeutic agents but also those chemicals whose intention is not therapeutic but whose exposure has an environmental component. Analyzing the trouble of poisons and poisonings over the centuries can be seen that in spite of the different genealogies, the growth of clinical and forensic toxicology runs similar. Staying in corresponding position and complement each other, they form a single order - Toxicology. Whereas, Forensic toxicology deals with the investigations of causes of death, poisoning and insufficient or recreational drug use. Forensic science is concerned with the study of toxic substances or poisons. The primary concern for forensic toxicology is the obtainment and interpretation of results, Rather than the legal outcome of the toxicological investigation or the technology utilized.
