The TIAFT List of Therapeutic and Toxic Values of Drugs has been permanently removed from the TIAFT website. While databases of concentrations can be useful in assisting interpretations of toxicology results there are many factors that must be specifically considered when interpreting postmortem drug concentrations. These may include, but are not limited to:
With so many variables, postmortem interpretation of drug concentrations should be made in context, with a careful review of case history and giving consideration to analytical and pre-analytical variables.
For this reason the TIAFT Board has decided a more holistic review of laboratory data is not only essential but critical, and therefore TIAFT is no longer providing this data which, for practical reasons, cannot account for all the possible variables. There are published sources available which review the data in the literature available for the pharmacology and toxicology of various drugs. These are good starting points to begin the interpretive process.
Two of the more widely relied upon include:
Additionally, there are numerous articles and reviews available in the scientific literature, many of which are open access.
Provides an international forum for studies on toxic substances, drugs of abuse, doping agents, chemical warfare agents, and their metabolisms and analyses, which are directly and indirectly related to laws and ethics.
The EJFS provides publication of articles in all clinical aspects of forensic medicine and related specialities carrying classic reviews, case studies and many others and offering critical analysis and scientific appraisal.
A multidisciplinary journal covering analytical, legal and social issues surrounding drugs. In addition to primary research articles and case reports it also offers tutorials, reviews and speculative pieces.
A peer-reviewed journal, published in French and in English, devoted to analytical & clinical toxicology. It covers clinical, forensic, environmental, doping, addiction, alternative matrices, and quality assurance apects.
