Principles for evaluating health risks from chemicals during infancy and early childhood : the need for a special approach / published under the joint sposorship of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organisation, the World Health Organization, and on behalf of the Commission of the European Communities
International Programme on Chemical Safety; Commission of the European Communities; United Nations Environment Programme; International Labour Organization; World Health Organization ( 1986 )
Abstract

Elaborates basic principles for the evaluation of chemical toxicology that are specific to the physiological characteristics of infants and young children. Principles of evaluation, which were worked out by 46 leading experts, are based on a thorough review of data on postnatal physiology, metabolism, and the special factors governing exposure in this age group, including behavioural and cultural conditions. Following background information on relevant features of postnatal morphology, biochemistry, and physiology, chapters assess the kinetics of absorption, biotransformation, and elimination and point out ways in which certain conditions of postnatal development will influence the effects of chemicals on different organs and systems. The book concludes with a discussion of factors that can assist in the identification of children at risk

Ammonia / published under the joint sponsorship of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organisation, and the World Health Organization
International Programme on Chemical Safety; United Nations Environment Programme; International Labour Organization; World Health Organization ( 1986 )
Abstract

An expert assessment of the effects on human health and the environment posed by ammonia. Prepared by a 14-member task group, the book bases its evaluations on more than 600 published reports of epidemiological, laboratory, and clinical investigations, including controlled studies in man. The most extensive sections of the book are devoted to the effects of ammonia in the aquatic and terrestrial environments where, as a result of urbanization, industry, and farming, significant toxic effects of ammonia may arise. Readers will find especially detailed assessments of the effects on aquatic animals as well as effects on cattle, swine, and poultry resulting from continuous exposure under confined housing conditions. Information on the kinetics and metabolism of ammonia and on its effects on experimental animals and in vitro systems is also presented

Epidémiologie des maladies et des accidents liés à la profession : dixième rapport du Comité mixte OIT/OMS de médecine du travail [réuni à Genève du 1er au 7 septembre 1987]
Joint ILO/WHO Committee on Occupational Health; World Health Organization; International Labour Organization ( 1989 )
Abstract

Cet ouvrage évalue les moyens d'utiliser la recherche épidémiologique pour déterminer quand les facteurs liés au lieu de travail opèrent comme causes de maladies ou d'accidents. Destiné au personnel chargé de la sécurité et de l'hygiène dans les entreprises, il sert de guide détaillé sur l'application de différentes méthodes épidémiologiques en indiquant comment elles ont déjà permis de mieux connaître les risques pour la santé liés au lieu de travail, ainsi que les moyens de prévention. Etant donné la complexité des facteurs humains et écologiques qu'il faut élucider, une attention particulière est accordée à la conception des études et à la méthodologie afin que la recherche épidémiologique puisse mieux fournir des données sensibles, spécifiques et fiables

Acrylamide
International Programme on Chemical Safety; International Labour Organization; United Nations Environment Programme; World Health Organization ( 1985 )
Abstract

Acrylamide, which is known to produce neurotoxic effects in man and many experimental animals, is a white, odourless, crystalline solid that is highly soluble in water. Commercially produced since 1954, acrylamide and its derivatives are primarily used in the production of polymers and copolymers having a large market as flocculating agents in the treatment of sewage, wastewater, and drinking water. The ingestion of contaminated drinking water can pose an important health risk for man. This document utilizes well over 200 references to clarify current knowledge on the health consequences of exposure to acrylamide. Concern over neurotoxic effects is reflected in a detailed section in which conclusions are drawn on the basis of considerable animal research
