Estimating gastrointestinal absorption remains a significant challenge in the risk assessment of metals. This presentation reviews our current understanding of the gastrointestinal absorption of lead (Pb) to illustrate physiological mechanisms involved in metal absorption, new approaches that are being applied to the problem of estimating metal absorption in humans, and issues related to integrating this information into risk assessment. Absorption of metals can be highly variable in human… CONTINUE READING
