Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


This editorial summarizes Temperature's special issue entitled “Temperature and Toxicology with a Focus on Drugs of Abuse” (2014, volume 1, issue 3), dedicated to the multiple recent discoveries related to the thermoregulatory effects of xenobiotics. Several basic and clinical studies on xenobiotic-induced hyperthermia are reported that propose novel mechanisms and treatments.
