EMSG42: Increase of the robustness of the fish endocrine assay and avoidance of irrelevant endpoints

The objective of this study was to determine the influence of the test items potassium permanganate, 2-methoxyethanol and octanol to reproduction and the endocrine system of fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas). For this purpose, mature male and female fathead minnow were exposed in […]

21DAY: Phase 3 of the validation of the OECD Fish Screening Assay

The eight studies in the attached report were conducted as part of OECD Test Guideline program to validate a standardized OECD protocol for a 21-day fish screening assay for the detection of endocrine active substances (i.e. estrogen, aromatase inhibitors, androgen). […]

D2.2-VITO: Generation and Application of a Model to Determine Intra- and Inter-individual Variation in Biomarkers

Biomarkers which reflect levels of pollutants in the human body offer a unique opportunity to investigate impact of environmental pollution on humans. Biomarker levels in the general population are influenced by genetic, physiological and external factors. Knowledge on which factors […]

R2-BIHH: The Physiological and Bronchial Inflammatory Marker Response to Exposure in the Workplace in Patients With Occupational Asthma

Occupational asthma is the commonest occupational lung disease, accounting for 5% of all cases of asthma, and incidence is rising. Sufferers lose on average half their total take-home income (including compensation) for four years after diagnosis. Whilst the clinical and […]

ECO1C-TUD: Comparison of Soil and Sediment Ecotoxicity Data and Test Methods

Existing data on ecotoxicity of chemicals for water, sediment and soil varies widely in quality, quantity, validity, and how representative it is. This is due to environmental concerns having initially focused water, with soil and sediment taken into account only […]

B1.1-FRAU: Identification of Structure Activity Relationships Alerts for Substances With Low NOELs (REPDOSE)

The toxicological data profiles of many of the more than 100,000 substances included in the EINECS are incomplete. Scientific tools are needed to minimize test requirements and to prioritise research needs. Here consideration of Structure Activity Relationships (SAR) could be […]

ECO2A-ASTRA: Understanding and Measurement of Persistence in the Marine and Terrestrial Compartments

The persistence of a chemical in the environment - how resistant it is to being broken down in nature - is hard to predict. Its tendency to build up in living organisms - to bioconcentrate or bioaccumulate - is similarly […]

B2.1-TNO: Characterisation of Uncertainty and Variation in Assessment of Chronic Occupational Exposure

Many adverse health effects of chemical exposure occur after repeated contact over long periods. In assessing the risks of such chronic effects in the workplace, "reasonable worst case" estimates of exposure during a shift or working day are often used. […]
