toxic agents affecting (neuronal) viability / cell viability

Just depending on context. By the way, what is the complete original sentence (or even better: 2-3 sentences?)

one ref.: http://lansbury.bwh.harvard.edu/da_and_synuclein.htm

(incl. various uses of "affect" or "affecting")

Yes, right, it is bad English (also bad German; vitalitätsschädigend in Google shows only KudoZ links and links to another context, computer games etc.) ... but who says that you have to use it?

Just talking about Vitalität (German) --> vitality (Engl.). In scientific or medical context, you always use viability, see a 'relevant' text here:
