The database summarizes the results from aquatic acute toxicity tests
conducted by the USGS CERC located in Columbia, Missouri.
The Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD) is a publicly available
research resource that curates scientific data describing relationships
between chemicals, genes, and human diseases. A primary goal of CTD is
to advance the understanding of the effects of environmental chemicals
on human health.

EPA’s mission is to protect human health and the environment.
EPA’s IRIS Program supports this mission by identifying and
characterizing the health hazards of chemicals found in the environment.
Each IRIS assessment can cover a chemical, a group of related
chemicals, or a complex mixture. US NIH: Environmental Health & Toxicology - Specialized Information Service
