ForthTox is an independent, toxicological consultancy working in pharmaceutical and chemical development; we are located in Scotland. We offer two proprietary in silico models for prediction of toxicity: Leadscope and Derek Nexus and use other software, such as T.E.S.T., CAESAR and ToxTree as appropriate; we also have a licence for METEOR for prediction of metabolism, allowing cross-checking of metabolites for toxicity. The results of in silico evaluation are validated, where appropriate, by reference to reports for closely related substances or by read across to groups of related chemicals, depending on context and information availability. We have extensive experience with in silico and in cerebro evaluations and our reports have been submitted to, and accepted by, major authorities including FDA and EMA.

S-IN Soluzioni Informatiche offers complete molecular informatics and QSAR services in compliance with the current regulations, e.g. REACH, CLP, ICH M7, BPR. Our team has a long-term experience of more than 10 years on the use of in silico (non-testing) methods in the regulatory context. We provide predictions for (eco)toxicological and physicochemical properties generated by different in silico methods, i.e. analogue approaches, statistical-based (quantitative) structure-activity relationships (Q)SARs and expert-rule based systems. In silico predictions are provided employing both commercial software (Leadscope, ACD/Labs Percepta) as well as publicly available software (Toxtree, Vega, T.E.S.T., ECOSAR, EPISuite, OECD QSAR Toolbox and CAESAR). When possible, we employ different tools in order to apply a consensus approach and thus enhance the reliability of the predictions. We also support customers with consulting and training services on how non-testing methods can be best applied within the regulatory framework.
SafeBridge is a unique team of toxicologists, industrial hygienists, and analytical chemists providing professional consulting services and analytical support to U.S. and international clients primarily in the greater pharmaceutical industry (including biotechnology and fine chemicals). With significant experience in product safety and occupational toxicology risk assessment, our toxicologists perform computational predictive toxicology assessments using Leadscope® and Derek Nexus; establish acceptable (permissible) daily exposure and occupational exposure limits; and provide toxicology testing guidance (study design and study monitoring) while employing rational and scientifically sound approaches that are consistent with the state of the art. We are equipped to help our clients safely manage their active pharmaceutical ingredients, chemicals, intermediates, impurities, and extractables and leachables, from the laboratory bench to the patient.

Toxicology Solutions, Inc.
Toxicology Solutions is an independent consulting company focused on providing small molecule toxicology services to the pharmaceutical industry. Specialty services include in silico toxicity predictions using 3 major predictive software programs (Leadscope Model Applier, DEREK Nexus, and MultiCase).
Computational Toxicology Services offers a cost effective solution for pharmaceutical and chemical industry clients with toxicity screening needs that do not justify the investment in QSAR software, database modules and staff required to carry out independent computational toxicology screening. SciQSAR (MDL-QSAR), LeadScope and Derek predictive modules are available for the major toxicology studies necessary for the marketing of pharmaceuticals and food contact substances in the US and internationally and are currently being used as decision support tools for safety assessment by the FDA (1-5). The Computational Toxicology Services modules contain information derived from public sources and available under the freedom of information act.
Toxicology Consulting is an evaluation and communication process employed to convert technical toxicological data into useable knowledge which is then applied in the management of chemical risks.
