Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Every drug candidate must go through clinical pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic assessment, along with long- and short-term toxicological studies at various stages until the finished product is marketed. These studies could also be extended to include metals and their compounds used not only in medicine but also in various products involved in daily life, such as organometallic drugs, paints, and so on. Several metals also play vital roles in maintaining life processes by being part of the metabolism and enzyme syntheses and their activities.

This Special Issue will welcome original research and review articles from researchers involved in clinical and translational research, basic sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, and clinicians from around the world on the relevant topics.
