Pharmaceutical pollution of the world’s rivers

Researchers of the Veterinary Faculty of University of Ljubljana participated in a new high-profile global study of river pollution by active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), led and coordinated by the University of York (UK). As the study looked at 258 rivers from all continents, including Antarctica, with a single approach to sampling, analytical methodology and statistical processing, it has been the first truly global-scale investigation of medical contamination in the environment. Ljubljanica was among the least polluted rivers, included in this research.

A summary of the study, with a link to its publication, is available at the website of the Veterinary Faculty of University of Ljubljana:

In memoriam prof. dr. Valentin Skubic

We announce the sad news about death of professor dr. Valentin Skubic, honorary member of the Slovenian Toxicological Society (STD).

Prof. Skubic was one of the founding members of STD. His participation in the establishment and work of the STD was a reflection of his many years of work in the field of toxicology (and pharmacology), as evidenced in his rich biography and bibliography. Due to his top expertise, he has participated in the work of various bodies, committees and commissions and industry related to various fields of toxicology. As a university professor in the field of pharmacology with toxicology at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine on University of Ljubljana and head of the Institute of Physiology, Pharmacology and Toxicology, he selflessly passed on his experience to numerious undergraduate and postgraduate students and associates.

Rest in peace dear professor!

Webinar for STD members

Thursday 14/5/2020 at 17pm

For active members of STD will be organised webinar by dr. Ester Lovšin Barle (Head Product Stewardship and Health, Takeda Pharmaceuticals).

Title: General principles of worker protection from exposure to oncology medicinal products in pharmaceutical research, development and manufacturing


The European Commission is financing a study to support a preparatory work concerning a possible EU initiative to protect workers from exposure to hazardous medicinal products in the healthcare setting. The study may result in the possible amendment to the EU Directive 2004/37/EC – carcinogens or mutagens at work (aka Carcinogens and Mutagens directive (CMD)) or other relevant Occupational Safety and Health legislation or other non-legislative instruments (Ares(2019)7813568 – 19/12/2019).

In pharma worker exposures are managed through a system of hazard and risk assessment with the aim of eliminating potential for adverse health effects. In this webinar an overview of those risk assessment and mitigation principles will be discussed with a link to published literature on the exposure management gaps observed in healthcare setting.

Webinar will be in Slovenian language, slides will be presented in English.
