Epa's reassessment of dioxin risk : directed health research.
Chlorinated dioxins and related compounds. International symposium. Tampere (FIN), 1992/08/24.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency initiated a reassessment of the rish of exposure to dioxin in the spring of 1991 because of the evolution of scientific thinking as well as the publication of several key experimental studies.
This involves a literature reevaluation as well as laboratory studies in both health and ecological risks.
One of the major goals is development of a biologically based dose response model.
Directed health research involves comparison of sensitive responses in rats and mice, following both acute and chronic exposure, such as enzyme induction in multiple tissues, phosphorylaton responses, tissue dosimetry, and effects on the immune system.
