ISSX 1996 European Spring Workshop

Food Toxins and host mechanisms conditioning toxic responses

Sitges, Spain.
June 1-4, 1996

This European ISSX (The International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics)
Workshop will take place from Saturday 1st June till Tuesday 4th June in
the lovely city of Sitges (Spain), located 30 Km south from Barcelona.
Workshop attendance will be limited.

The objective of this Workshop is to bring together both senior and young
scientists to present and discuss their latest contributions in diverse
areas of host mechanisms, such as mechanisms of toxicity, role of
biotransformation enzymes, and inhibitory and inducing effects, that
condition the response of xenobiotics, with a particular emphasis on
compounds present in diet. In addition to the opportunity for poster and
oral presentations, the following subjects will be covered in scientific

* Mechanisms of toxicity.
* Role of biotransformation enzymes.
* Inhibitory and inducing effects.
* Natural and artificial food toxins.
