EPA Advisory Panel Meeting to Consider Inhalation Toxicity Case Study
The Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act will meet on December 4-7 at EPA’s Potomac Yards site in Arlington, VA. The meeting’s topic is “Evaluation of a Proposed Approach to Refine Inhalation Risk Assessment for Point of Contact Toxicity: A Case Study Using a New Approach Methodology.”
The case study focuses on use of a human tissue-based in vitro assay to characterize the hazard of the pesticide chlorothalonil and derive a point of departure (POD) for use in human health risk assessment. EPA is soliciting advice from the SAP on the derivation of the POD from the in vitro assay and the integration of the in vitro POD for calculation of human equivalent concentrations for inhalation risk assessment.
The meeting is open to the public and will be webcast via Adobe Connect. Preregistration is not required to attend the meeting or view the webcast. Visit the EPA website for information about meeting logistics and additional information about the meeting.
