Regardless of the paucity of the early record, and given the need for people to avoid toxic animals and plants, toxicology must be one of the oldest practical sciences. The Egyptian papyrus, Ebers, dating from about 1500 BC, must rank as the earliest surviving pharmacopeia, and the surviving medical works of Hippocrates, Aristotle, and Theophrastus, published during the period 400–250 BC, all include some mention of poisons. The early Greek poet Nicander treats, in two poetic works, animal toxins (Therica) and antidotes to plant and animal toxins (Alexipharmica).

15 16 BIOCHEMICAL AND MOLECULAR METHODS IN TOXICOLOGY are, however, limitations in the use of cellular methods. It has not been possible to culture many cell types, and of those that have been cultured, the loss of differentiated cell function is a common problem. Extrapolation of findings to the intact animal is often problematical, and the use of undefined media constituents such as serum, often essential for cell viability, may have unwanted or undefined effects on cell function and toxicant bioavailability.
