(Greek: poison)

This Greek element originally meant "bow", then it became "arrow", then a "poisoned arrow" and finally "poison". In most cases, toxico- means poison, but in a few situations it refers to the original meaning of "arrow", as in toxophilite and toxophily; "love of or fondness for archery", and so it shouldn't be confused with toxophil, toxophile, "having an affinity for or an attraction to a toxin or poison'.
exotoxins
fetotoxic, fetotoxicity, fetotoxicities
A reference to anything that is poisonous to the fetus.

Elements considered potentially febotoxic include alcohol, morphine, cocaine, salicylates (salt or ester of salicylic acid), coumarin anticoagulants (one of a group of natural and synthetic compounds that antagonize the biosynthesis of vitamin K), sedatives, tetracyclines (group of broad-spectrum antibiotics), thiazides (diuretics primarily in the treatment of hypertension), tobacco smoke, and excessive doses of vitamin K.

fetotoxicity
Injury to the fetus from a substance that enters the maternal and placental circulation and may cause death or retardation of growth and development.
forensic toxicology
The use of toxicology to aid a medicolegal investigation of death and poisoning.

Many toxic substances do not produce characteristic lesions, so if a toxic reaction is suspected, visual investigation may not provide an adequate deduction.

A forensic toxicologist must consider the context of an investigation, in particular any physical symptoms recorded, and any evidence collected at a crime scene that may narrow the search; such as, pill bottles, powders, trace residue, and any available chemicals.

Provided with this information and samples with which to work, the forensic toxicologist must determine which toxic substances are present, in what concentrations, and the probable effect of those chemicals on the human subject being investigated.

fungitoxic
A description of a substance that is poisonous to fungi.
fungitoxicity
The property of being fungitoxic or poisonous in any way deleterious (detrimental) to the growth of fungi.
gastrotoxin
genotoxicity
gonotoxemia
Toxic condition resulting from the hematogenous dissemination of gonococci and the effects of the absorbed endotoxin.
haemotoxin
hemotoxin
hepatotoxicity
hepatotoxin
heterointoxication
Intoxication by a poison not produced within the body.
heterotoxic
Poisonous only to species that are different from the organism producing the poison.
