“Old science was dusted off, venerable Professors were reinvigorated, new science was invented, new companies touted the ability to define and understand metabolites with their new technologies…”
I love metabolites in safety testing (MIST): at least, now I do. In addition to the real benefits, look at all of the fun we had with it. Aside from providing many of our prestigious scientific journals with some of the most innovative manuscript titles since the invention of Viagra (‘Seeing Through the MIST’, ‘Which Metabolites Have We MIST’, ‘Clearing the MIST’ and ‘Gorillas in the MIST’, etc.), it has been a roller coaster of activity. In this editorial, I will provide an extremely light-hearted personal interpretation of the historical course of MIST, having a little fun with us in the process.
