Abstract This glossary contains definitions of 365 terms frequently used in the multidisciplinary field of toxicokinetics. The glossary is compiled primarily for chemists who find themselves currently working in toxicology and requiring a knowledge of the expressions used in toxicokinetics,especially in relation to hazard and risk assessment. Some medical terms are included, where relevant, because of their frequent occurrence in the toxicological literature and because chemists would not… 

Glossary of terms used in toxicology, 2nd edition (IUPAC Recommendations 2007)

Abstract This glossary, a revision of the IUPAC "Glossary for Chemists of Terms Used in Toxicology" [Pure Appl. Chem.65, 2003 (1993)] incorporating new and redefined terms from the "Glossary of Terms

Explanatory dictionary of key terms in toxicology (IUPAC Recommendations 2007)

Abstract The objective of the "Explanatory Dictionary of Key Terms in Toxicology" is to give full explanations of the meaning of toxicological terms chosen for their importance and complexity from

Risk assessment of effects of cadmium on human health (IUPAC Technical Report)

It is recommended that cadmium exposures be kept as low as possible because the safety margin for toxic effects in kidney and bone is small, or non-existent, in many populations around the world, and there is a need to reduce cad mium pollution globally.

Dose–Response for Essential Metals and the Evaluation of Mixed Exposures

Pharmacokinetics: Computational Versus Experimental Approaches to Optimize Insecticidal Chemistry

An ideal insecticide is a compound that is highly toxic to target insect pest species but has a low toxicity to non-target organisms, including beneficial species of insects, and with a high

Development and Application of Biomonitoring Equivalents for Interpreting Biomonitoring Data in a Human Health Risk Context

This dissertation describes the concept and implementation of Biomonitoring Equivalents (BEs), estimates of the concentration of a chemical or metabolite in a biological medium that is consistent with an existing exposure guidance value such as a tolerable daily intake (TDI) or reference dose (RfD).

Inconsistencies in data requirements of EU legislation involving tests on animals.

A homogeneous EU-wide approach for all areas involving risk assessment of substances with the goal of better implementing the 3Rs and complying with Directive 2010/63/EU is strongly suggested.

Chapter 22. Risk Assessment

It is imperative that readers of this Handbook have a firm perspective on the exposure levels of metallic substances that produce adverse health effects and the various risk assessment approaches that have been used and are evolving to protect the health and well-being of living organisms.
