Use of Biomonitoring Data in Exposure and Human Health Risk Assessments: A Reprint from the Journal, “Environmental Health Perspectives”
Richard Albertini (au)
Biomonitoring (BM) uses analytic methods that permit the accurate measurement of low levels of environmental chemicals in human tissues. However, depending on the intended use, BM, like all exposure tools, may not be a stand-alone exposure assessment tool for some of its environmental public health uses. In 2004, the International BM Workshop was held, which explored the processes & info. needed for placing BM data into perspective for risk assessment (RA) purposes, with special emphasis on integrating biomarker measurements of exposure, internal dose, & potential health outcome. Contents: (1) The Use of BM Data in Exposure & Human Health RA; (2) Potential Uses of BM Data: A Case Study Using the Organophosphorus Pesticides Chlorpyrifos & Malathion; (3) Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers: A Case Study for Using BM Data to Address RA Questions: (4) The Applicability of BM Data for Perfluorooctanesulfonate to the Environmental Public Health Continuum; (5) Integrating BM Exposure Data into the RA Process: Phthalates [Diethyl Phthalate & Di(2-ethylhexyl) Phthalate] As a Case Study; (6) Biomarkers of Exposure: A Case Study with Inorganic Arsenic; & (7) Use of BM Data to Evaluate Methyl Eugenol Exposure.
