Please note the change in program for the symposium on  "Molecular models for
prediction of drug metabolism and toxicity", on 19 April.
S Kliewer, USA  Use of the nuclear receptors PXR and PPAR to predict drug
 P Ortiz de Montellano, USA  Model based prediction of drug metabolism;
lessons from bacterial and mammalian enzymes
 G C K Roberts, UK  The use of structural information from NMR to improve
active-site models of cytochromes P450
 M Parker, Australia  Three-dimensional structures of  glutathione
transferases and their   interactions with drugs
 B Houston, UK Prediction of rates of metabolism; in  vitro to in vivo

The British Toxicology Meeting 18-21 April has the following sessions. 
Molecular models for prediction of metabolism and toxicity
 Current issues in pharmaceutical regulatory toxicology
 Inflammatory cells and mediators in immunotoxic and allergic responses
 Same dose, different person; biomarkers of individual exposures to toxic
 The limits of toxicity testing in man
 Molecular biology in pathology and toxicology
 Occupational toxicology: controversies on carcinogenicity
Barnes lecture A. Wyllie, UK:  Mutagenesis, apoptosis and cancer treatment
 Oral communications
Early markers of cell death in toxicity testing
Challenges associated with the safety evaluation of products from transgenic
animals and plants
