Topic: ToxValDB: A comprehensive database of quantitative in vivo study results from over 25,000 chemicals

Who: Dr. Richard Judson, Research Chemist in EPA's National Center for Computational Toxicology

When: December 20 from 11:00 AM- 12:00 PM EST

Where: In person at EPA's Research Triangle Park conference room D-101 or participate remotely

Topic overview:

Laboratories have been running in vivo animal-based toxicology studies for 50 years or more, which can provide a large resource for assessing individual chemicals to which people are exposed, or for building a variety of models to help predict the toxicity of untested chemicals. However, most of this data is dispersed among many individual databases and reports. To address these issues, EPA is developing a comprehensive collection of quantitative summary data from public data sets.

This resource, called ToxValDB, collects data from 34 unique sources including those from the EPA, DOE, DOD, CDC/ATSDR, FDA, ECHA, EFSA, Health Canada, and the California EPA. Data covers both mammalian studies relevant for human health risk assessments as well as ecological studies. The current database contains approximately 700,000 records for over 25,000 chemicals. The data is being made public both through the EPA Comptox Chemicals Dashboard as well as in large database export files.
