QSAR Approaches for Potential Mutagenic Impurities Assessment
Application of (quantitative) structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models for the hazard assessment and classification of potentially mutagenic impurities and the role of expert reviews to determine a final decision on conflicting or inconclusive predictions and supporting the relevance of any positive or negative predictions.
