BACKGROUND Asthmatic individuals constitute a large sub-population that is often considered particularly susceptible to the deleterious effects of inhalation of airborne chemicals. However, for most such chemicals information on asthmatics is lacking and inter-individual assessment factors (AFs) of 3-25 have been proposed for use in the derivation of health-based guideline values. OBJECTIVE To evaluate available information in attempt to determine whether a general difference in airway… CONTINUE READING
