  1. Exposure toxicity equivalents (ETEs) : a plea for more environmental chemistry in dioxin risk assessment.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    Chlorinated dioxins and related compounds. International symposium. Tampere (FIN), 1992/08/24.

    A crucial limitation of the toxicity equivalency concept is frequently overlooked, namely that toxicity equivalents are appropriate only for PCDD/F mixtures present in the target tissue.

    A new concept - exposure toxicity equivalents is proposed that allows the equivalency concept to be extended to environmental matrices.

    In attempting to apply this methodology it becomes apparent that gaps in our knowledge of the environmental behaviour of PCDD/F significantly impair our ability to conduct dioxin risk evaluations.
