Ingestion of contaminated soils by children during hand-to-mouth activities can be a significant exposure pathway to toxic chemicals. Bioaccessibility, which corresponds to the fraction of an ingested contaminant dissolved in the gastrointestinal tract and potentially available for absorption, can be determined by in vitro extractions and gives a conservative value of relative oral bioavailability. The goal of this study was to investigate the validity of the CDM in vitro extraction protocol… CONTINUE READING
