The HExpoChem server contains information on diverse sources of chemicals with
the aim to explore human health risk from chemical exposure. Five sources of
information are considered i.e. drugs, food, cosmetics, industrial chemicals and
human metabolites corresponding of over 10183 unique chemicals with bioactivities
for around 19 483 human proteins.
HExpoChem can assist in the multi-exposure to chemicals defined as a "cocktail"
through several tools and can help in the decision of potential proteins and
proteins complexes associated to life-style diseases.
Additional information can be obtained under the "instructions" and "output
