piWe have currently established the basic data format (item : headings) in anattempt to integrate the following overall information of forensic toxicology, namely name of drug, CAS No. accession number, kinds (samples of either living or dead humans), age, sex, weight, findings (data and time of discovery), presumption of dosing (or dosages), collection (data and time of sample collection), disturbances (date and time of troubles), calendar data, discovery (data and time of discoveries), dosage assumption (assumed data and time of dosing), collection (data and time of sample collection), disturbances (data and time of troubles), time, summary of ***ents (suicide), accident, murder, poisoning, traffic accident, fire, other events, spcimens, analytical methods, internal-standard substances, quantitative determination level, serum concentrations of other toxicological drugs, cause of death, name of causal factors or name of diseasaes, life or death (the presence of absence of primary dise
ases), causal factors of death, the presence or absence of alcohol detected after death).
According to the above format of information, we have accumulated the data on the detected toxicological substances of drugs collected from 7 universities, thereby integrating the inputting and retrieval methods. We have also used internetworking units (IWU) in exchanging such information accumulated by respective universities on the toxicological drugs so that the total base of information can freely be inspected or retrieved.
As a result, the total number of accumulated autoptic and clinical cases reached approximately 1,600 which became a precious stock of information that can be usefully referred to be researchers in the fields of not only forensic toxicology but also clinical toxicology whose contribution to forensic toxicology, clinical medicine and community medicine can be highly evaluated. Furthermore, the usefulness of these data information is now expected to be capable of coping with IWU now becoming a standardized means of communication will doubtlessly be enhanced. Less
