Publication year 2018

This annual review is the third one to highlight recent advances in the study and assessment of biotransformations and bioactivations (Table 1). We followed the same format as the previous years with selection and authoring each section (see Baillie et al. 2016; Khojasteh et al. 2017). We acknowledge that many universities no longer train students in mechanistic biotransformation studies reflecting a decline in the investment for those efforts by public funded granting institutions. We hope this work serves as a resource to appreciate the knowledge gained each year to understand and hopefully anticipate toxicological outcomes dependent on biotransformations and bioactivations. This effort itself also continues to evolve. I am pleased that Drs. Rietjens and Miller have again contributed to this annual review. We would like to welcome Kaushik Mitra as an author for this year’s issue, and we thank Deepak Dalvie for his contributions to last year’s edition. We have intentionally maintained a balance of authors such that two come from an academic setting and two come from industry. As always, please drop us a note if you find this review helpful. We would be pleased to hear your opinions of our commentary, and we extend an invitation to anyone who would like to contribute to a future edition of this review.
