As part of an initiative to facilitate adequate identification and display of substance-associated health effects a toxicological ontology - ToxOntology - was created. Further; an alignent with MeSH was accomplished to obtain an indirect index to the scientific literature.

To arrive at satisfactory results in the semantically-enabled applications; highquality ontologies and alignments are both necessary. A key step towards high quality in this area is debugging the ontologies and their alignments. In this paper we present an experience report on the debugging of ToxOntology and MeSH as well as an alignment.
