New Projects

Metabolism Terms

IUPAC has approved a new project to list and define terms pertinent to the area of drug metabolism. The resulting list will be disseminated to the scientific community via publication in relevant journals. This process will help achieve a common definition base across the various publications and databases pertaining to the drug metabolism field, particularly with regard to the latter' s impact upon chemical structure. Comments from the medicinal chemistry and drug metabolism communities are welcome and should be addressed to the project chairperson, Prof. Paul Erhardt, Center for Drug Design and Development, The University of Toledo College of Pharmacy, Toledo, Ohio 43606-3390, USA; Tel: +1 419 530 2167; Fax: +1 419 530 1994; E-mail: See for project description and update.
