Research we undertake

Staff of the NPIS are active in research relating to clinical toxicology, as evidenced by the numbers of articles published in the medical literature. This research is not a core function of the NPIS Units but is important for increasing the evidence base for NPIS advice on poisons management. It is often performed during academic sessions held with Universities and funded by external grants.

 

Recent research studies include:

| Reserach we undertake | Antidotes | Button batteries | Carbon monoxide | Cyanide | 2,4-dinitrophenol | Drugs of misuse | Electronic cigarettes | Glycols and methanol |Household products | Iron poisoning | Lead exposure | NSAIDs | Oral anticoagulants | Pesticides | Snake bite |
