Abstract: Many epidemiologic studies are designed so they can be drawn upon to provide scientific evidence for evaluating hazards of environmental exposures, conducting quantitative assessments of risk, and informing decisions designed to reduce or eliminate har...

The Pebble Remains in the Master's Hand: Two Careers Spent Learning (Still) from John Evans.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Risk analysis : an official publication of the Society for Risk Analysis [Risk Anal] 2021 Apr; Vol. 41 (4), pp. 678-693. Date of Electronic Publication: 2020 Dec 15.

Authors:

Abstract: In this article, we discuss four vexing problems in risk-based decision making that John Evans has addressed over the last nearly 40 years and has perennially challenged the two of us and others to think about. We tackle the role in decision making of ...

Non-relevance of acute dermal toxicity testing for assessing human health protection in the regulatory decision-making for agrochemical formulated products.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Regulatory toxicology and pharmacology : RTP [Regul Toxicol Pharmacol] 2019 Aug; Vol. 106, pp. 105-110. Date of Electronic Publication: 2019 Apr 25.

Abstract: Compared to oral toxicity tests, dermal toxicity tests offer little or no additional scientific information or public health protection for agrochemical-formulated products (US EPA, 2016). Based on that, a retrospective analysis of the results of acute...

Advantages and challenges of the implementation of a low-cost particulate matter monitoring system as a decision-making tool.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environmental monitoring and assessment [Environ Monit Assess] 2019 Oct 24; Vol. 191 (11), pp. 667. Date of Electronic Publication: 2019 Oct 24.

Abstract: The integration of monitoring technologies in the last decades has been a key factor in the development of new ways to track air pollutants and supplementing the network of traditional monitoring systems. In this regard, the appearance of affordable an...

In vitro to in vivo extrapolation for high throughput prioritization and decision making.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Toxicology in vitro : an international journal published in association with BIBRA [Toxicol In Vitro] 2018 Mar; Vol. 47, pp. 213-227. Date of Electronic Publication: 2017 Dec 05.

Abstract: In vitro chemical safety testing methods offer the potential for efficient and economical tools to provide relevant assessments of human health risk. To realize this potential, methods are needed to relate in vitro effects to in vivo responses, i.e., i...

Approaches for describing and communicating overall uncertainty in toxicity characterizations: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) as a case study.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environment international [Environ Int] 2016 Apr-May; Vol. 89-90, pp. 110-28. Date of Electronic Publication: 2016 Jan 28.

Abstract: Single point estimates of human health hazard/toxicity values such as a reference dose (RfD) are generally used in chemical hazard and risk assessment programs for assessing potential risks associated with site- or use-specific exposures. The resulting...
