Projects

A3.1: Establishment and Management of a Research Inventory on the Indoor Environment (IERIE)

Substantial research has been underway for many years on the health effects of pollutants in domestic and commercial buildings. This project has developed a searchable database (termed IERIE) of recent, current and planned indoor environment research activities across Europe. Existing […]

B3.1-CUSS: Strategies for Success? Managing Chemical Risks in Small Workplaces: a Review of European Practice

The research project is essentially a review of literature and informed interest on the main factors that determine effective and sustainable risk management in the use of chemical substances in small enterprises and an exploration of the supports for their […]

EMSG19: Chemicals and Pregnancy Study-UK (CHAPS-UK): Multicentre Study of Occupational Exposure to Chemicals and Male Fertility

The research institutes will study 6000 men attending any of the 10 fertility clinics in the UK over a period of 2 years. They will be classified as either fertile or infertile on the basis of sperm parameters. Standardised methods […]

A3.3: The EXPOLIS-Index Study, Human Exposure Patterns for Health Risk Assessment:Indoor Determinants of Personal Exposures in the European Expolis Population in Athens, Basel, Grenoble, Milan, Helsinki, Oxford And Praha

Exposure assessment plays a key role in the risk assessment procedure. In order to quantify the associated risk and health impact of a possible pollutant, it is necessary to obtain a description of the full-range of exposure distribution. This project […]

ECO3A-TUHH: MarSens – How Should We Deal with the Uncertainty in the Extrapolation of the Sensitivity of Marine Organisms to Narcotics? Critical Review of the State of the Art of Marine Risk Assessment and Recommendations for Future Research

The risk assessment of substances to the marine environment is linked with uncertainty due to several reasons, e.g. the marine environment encompasses a higher biodiversity than the freshwater environment. Moreover, the number of toxicity data on marine organisms for the […]

EMSG20: Environmental Factors and Male Reproductive Functions. A Cohort Study of the Incidence of Cryptorchidism and Hypospadia in 5000 Newborn Boys in the Rotterdam Area

This is a study of 10,000 men, their (pregnant) partners and their new-born children. Information will be collected on the incidence of urogenital disorders such as Cryptorchidism, Hypospadia, lifestyle, working conditions of the male partner and time to pregnancy. The […]

C1.3: Establish a Database of a Number of Parameters Sufficient Relevant for Reliable Prediction of European Consumer Exposures

Many chemicals are used daily in the home, in diverse end-uses such as cleaning, renovating and caring for houseplants. Product labels give advice on safe use, but there is scope to improve understanding of potential risks. One approach is to […]

EMSG21: Endocrine Disruption in the Marine Environment (EDMAR)

The EDMAR programme is investigating whether there is evidence of changes in the reproductive health of marine life and if so, seeks to identify possible causes and potential impacts. Areas for research include: development of methods for the detection of […]

EMSG25: Comparative Developmental and Reproductive Toxicity of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Vivo Rat Model

The study will investigate sex steroid-regulated gene expression in two sexually dimorphic brain regions i.e. the preoptic region, the bed nucleus of stria terminalis and the ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus, which are part of the neural network controlling sexually dimorphic behaviours […]
