Assessing human health risks of chemicals : derivation of guidance values for health-based exposure limits / published under the joint sponsorship of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organisation, and the World Health Organization
World Health Organization; International Programme on Chemical Safety ( 1994 )
Abstract

Outlines methods and procedures for the derivation of guidance values for protecting the health of humans exposed to chemical substances. Guidance values provide quantitative information from risk assessment for regulatory authorities and other risk managers, and provide a basis for the establishment of national or local exposure limits and standards. The approach described relates primarily to long-term exposure of the general opulation in the ambient environment. Addressed to all involved in chemical safety, the book aims to promote consistency in the methods used when evaluating the health effects of environmental chemicals and formulating credible conclusions. Information ranges from guidance on the use of uncertainty factors when human data are lacking, through advice on how to establish a tolerable intake when a chemical shows more than one adverse effect, to examples of cases where a guidance value should not be established. The first section introduces key terms and explains the two principal methodological concepts: development of a tolerable intake on the basis of interpretation of available toxicity data, and allocation of the proportions of the tolerable intake to various environmental media. The second section describes procedures for determining a tolerable intake on the basis of toxicity data. Section three sets out a series of steps to be followed when extrapolating from a toxicity data base to a tolerable intake, moving from selection of a pivotal study and critical effects, through interspecies extrapolation, to a final review of the total uncertainty factor. The concluding section offers advice on the allocation of tolerable intakes to derive guidance values

Abstract

A guide to the concepts and principles governing the use of biomarkers to assess the risks to human health posed by exposure to chemical agents. Emphasis is placed on criteria for the selection and validation of appropriate biomarkers of exposure, of toxic effect, and of susceptibility in either individuals or sub-populations. The book also explains how the use of validated biomarkers to monitor exposed populations can provide the basis for early public health interventions. The book opens with background information on the uses of biomarkers for health risk assessment, clinical diagnosis, and the monitoring of exposure, followed by a discussion of the principles and methods governing their selection and validation. The ethical and social issues that need to be considered when designing research projects are also discussed. The main part of the book sets out guidelines, supported by examples from recent research, for the selection and use of biomarkers of exposure, of effect, of carcinogenicity, and of susceptibility. For biomarkers of effect, the book concentrates on biomarkers that are currently used or under development to assess toxic effects on the hepatic, renal, haematological, immune, pulmonary, reproductive, developmental and nervous systems. For biomarkers of genotoxic carcinogens, the book describes currently available techniques using DNA adducts, protein adducts, cytogenic methods, chromosome damage, sister chromatid exchange, micronuclei, aneuploidy, and mutation. Biomarkers for non-genotoxic carcinogens are also briefly discussed. The concluding chapter, on susceptibility, alerts researchers to the many factors that can affect individual susceptibility to the toxic effects of chemicals
