TOXLINE
http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/sis/htmlgen?TOXLINE
TOXLINE is a bibliographic database covering the biochemical, pharmacological, physiological, and toxicological effects of drugs and other chemicals. It contains over 3 million citations, with abstracts and/or index terms and CAS Registry Numbers. TOXLINE references are grouped into two major parts--TOXLINE Core (a PubMed search) and TOXLINE Special (journal articles, technical reports, research projects, information center publications, etc.) which can be searched separately or together.
