EMSG43: Endocrine disrupting effects in fish induced by parasites

Recently evidence evolved that environmental compounds can interfere with the endocrine systems of wildlife and humans. Surface waters are suggested to be the main sink for these so called endocrine disruptors (ED). Therefore aquatic species seem to be the main […]

EMSG37-BAYER: Participation of Bayer CropScience in Phase 1A and 1B of the OECD validation work on the “Non-Spawning Fish Screening Assay” for the detection of endocrine active substances according to the OECD test protocol (ENV/JM/TG/EDTA(2002)5)

In a 21-day-assay (phase 1 B), sexually mature female and male fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) were exposed to a weak estrogen agonist, or a weak aromatase inhibitor, under flow-through conditions. Three different test-compound concentrations, a water-only control, and a corresponding positive control […]

C2.2-HPAG: Description of the nature of the accidental misuse of chemicals and chemical products

The overall objective of this research project is: - To describe the nature of accidental misuse of chemicals and chemical products available to consumers and to put this information in the context of overall estimates of accidental injury from chemicals. […]

AIMT1-PG: Evaluation of Signal Transduction Pathways in Model Organisms as Critical Mediators of Developmental Toxicity

The overall objective of the project is to determine whether model organisms with genetically sensitized signal transduction pathways can be used as predictors of mammalian developmental toxicity. Specific objectives: - Evaluate the effect of model developmental toxicants on the morphological […]

EMSG54: Advancing Neurodevelopmental Evaluation in Children: An Interdisciplinary Scientific Approach

With published research suggesting growing numbers of children affected by an array of neurodevelopmental disorders, questions regarding etiology will continue to be raised. The uses of neurodevelopmental tests in studies of environmental chemicals and pediatric neurodevelopmental disorders have been reviewed […]

HBM3: Data on in vitro metabolism and mechanisms of action in combination with kinetic modelling: integrating in risk assessment

The objectives of this project are the further development of strategies making use of the integration of different areas of knowledge on the chemistry and the biological activity of compounds, and their use in the interpretation of biomonitoring data. These […]

ECO13: Development, application and evaluation of model-based screening procedures for PBT chemicals and POPs (SCREEN-POP)

The scientific objectives of this project are: 1.To create a tiered screening system for identifying potential PBTs and POPs amongst existing chemicals; 2.To verify whether the potential PBTs / POPs identified in the screening program are present in the European background […]

EMSG46: Characterization of testicular toxicity using traditional and omic tools

The aim of this project is to characterize adult rat testicular toxicity induced by compounds that have either an estrogenic or a non-estrogenic mode of action. To fully realise this goal, the differentiation between normal background variability (ie no effect), […]

HBM2.2-ITC: Development of a computer program with a multi-level modelling tool for the estimation of biomonitoring equivalent guidance values for chemical agents related to health based exposure rates for inhalation, oral intake and/or skin exposure.

Objective: Development of a tiered tool with compartmental and physiologically based toxicokinetic models, taken up in a software program, to derive Biomonitoring Equivalent Guidance Values (BEGV) based on existing health based acceptable daily doses or acceptable health based daily exposures. […]

HBM2-DOW: Development of a Tiered Set of Modelling Tools for Derivation of Biomonitoring Guidance Values

Current determinations of the exposures that correspond with biomonitoring data (parent/metabolite in blood/urine) are generally conducted with chemical-specific pharmacokinetic models that are physiologically-based (PBPK), to best simulate xenobiotic disposition in complex mammalian systems. While these models are necessary to accurately […]
