This quantity comprises the most papers provided on the 1996 EUROTOX congress, Alicante, Spain, September 22-25,1996.
The figuring out of toxicological occasions, equivalent to the Spanish poisonous Oil Syndrome, or of intoxications by way of algal pollutants attracts seriously at the wisdom bought from uncomplicated technology. this is often in actual fact mirrored within the subject matters of Symposia and Workshops that care for adjustments in gene expression and immunotoxicity, prediction of person susceptibility to toxicants, mechanisms of phototoxicity, protein objectives of neurotoxicity, in addition to mechanisms of carcinogenesis in transgenic mice. the applying of uncomplicated technology then permits higher assessment of the position of pollution in hypersensitivity or a greater review of growth in antidotic remedy. A pivotal function is fulfilled the following by way of methodological points of the detection of alterations in gene expression, demanding situations in analytical toxicology, or the advance of in vitro types for the examine of molecular mechanisms of toxicity.

The potential outcomes of TOS can be studied and documented, and follow up will assist researchers in the United States who are studying the evolution of eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome (EMS) (Philen 1993). The clinical resemblance of TOS and EMS is remarkable, 51 and investigators have proposed the hypothesis that they may have related etiologies. Features of TOS and EMS are similar to those of several immunologic diseases. Studies of drug induced lupus (Jiang 1994) have suggested that environmental exposures may lead to connective tissue diseases and that these diseases may be related etiologically.

This study showed a dose-response relationship between the amount of an aniline-derived fatty acid, oleyl anilide, and the risk of becoming ill (Kilbourne 1988). This study, carried out in two Madrid locations, was replicated two years later by a study that included all the areas affected by the epidemic (Posada 1994). These two studies support both the conclusion that consumption of contaminated oil was important and that a definite dose-response relationship existed between the chemical compounds found in the oils and the risk of developing illness.
