  1. A method for quantitative assessment of reproductive risks to the human male.

    Article - En anglais

    There is a need for quantitative assessment of reproductive risks following human exposure to toxic agents.

    Current methods only estimate exposure levels that are unlikely to produce appreciable risk; they do not address the magnitude of risk.

    The quantitative reproductive risk estimation (QRRE) approach presented here enables calculation of the increased incidence of infertility in a human population resulting from exposure of males to a toxic agent.

    The four steps involve (A) obtaining a dose-response curve in experimental animals for the effect of a toxicant on a measure of reproductive function.
