 Abstract Submission

The Second Call for Abstracts closed on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time.

We encourage all those involved in the fields of metabolism, pharmacology, toxicology, molecular biology and other related disciplines to consider submitting an abstract for a poster presentation at the 6th Asia Pacific ISSX Meeting to be held at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China, May 11 - 14, 2018.  The First Call for abstracts closed on January 31, 2018. The Second Call for abstracts closed at 11:59 p.m. ET on March 31, 2018. Authors will be notified of acceptance status in April 2018.
Abstract Submission Guidelines and Instructions:

ISSX Membership Requirement:  At least one author named in the abstract MUST be a current, paid ISSX member. To obtain a login or to join ISSX, please complete the membership application at

Intent to Attend: By submitting an abstract for the meeting, you are confirming that if your abstract is accepted, you or one of your co-authors has every intention of attending the 6
thAsia Pacific ISSX Meeting.

Title: You MUST type the abstract title using all CAPITAL LETTERS. Submissions must have a title to be considered for the conference program.

Keywords:  For each submission, you must select a Topic Keyword (e.g. primary keyword). The following keywords are available in the submission system:


  • Bioavailability
  • Clearance prediction
  • Conjugation reactions and enzymes
  • Cytochrome P450
  • Differences in metabolism (species, gender, age, diseases)
  • Disposition
  • Drug discovery and development
  • Drug interaction
  • Enzyme induction
  • Enzyme inhibition/inactivation
  • Extrahepatic metabolism
  • Hepatic uptake
  • Hepatocytes
  • In Silico
  • In vitro techniques
  • In vitro–in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE)
  • Metabolism
  • Non-P450 phase I enzymes
  • Pharmacogenetics
  • Pharmacokinetic modelling
  • Pharmacokinetic prediction
  • Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics
  • Physiologically-based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK)
  • Transporters
  • Volume prediction



Authors: Please provide all required information for the presenting author including a valid email address. A presenter must be selected in order for abstracts to be considered. Please enter all additional authors in the order they should appear in the program. The abstract submission form will guide you through the process of entering the author(s) information. Please do not include the author information in the body of the abstract.

Abstract Body: The abstract text should be typed single-spaced and may not exceed 500 words (350 to 400 words is preferred). Type the text as one paragraph. All references included in the text should be numbered and accompanied by the full citation, including author’s names, title, journal name, volume, number, inclusive paging, and year of publication.

Abstract Content: Abstracts must describe previously unpublished work. Abstracts previously published for other national or international meetings will not be accepted.

Structure: If the abstract is about metabolism/disposition/mode of action of the compound, the chemical name or a partial structure must be included. If the compound causes a well-characterized biological response that is independent of structure (for example, compounds are a general inhibitor of some process, like apoptosis or chaperone function and structure is unrelated to the central theme), it is acceptable to include it with only the generic name.

Components: Abstracts should include a statement of hypothesis, methods used, supporting data, results and conclusions. Abstracts found to be lacking in sufficient clarity, relation to the meeting topic areas, or scientific content may be rejected.

Review: Preparation of the abstract should be rigorous and the abstract checked for errors and accuracy before submission. Errors in the submitted abstract cannot be corrected once the abstract is accepted. Errors can be corrected in the poster, so the whole set of data and information presented is accurate.

Poster Awards Competition

If you are submitting in the Poster Awards Competition category, do not also submit in the General Submission category.

Six Predoctoral/Graduate finalists and six Postdoctoral finalists will be selected from all Poster Awards Competition submissions. The 12 finalists will display their posters throughout the duration of the meeting. Finalist posters will be reviewed and rated by the Poster Awards Committee in the following categories:

  • Significance of the Research Problem
  • Experimental Approach
  • Soundness of Conclusions
  • Clarity of the Presentation

First, second, and third place winners will be selected in each category and recognized at a special awards session at the meeting.
