"This volume contains monographs prepared at the sixty-first meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which met in Rome, Italy, from 10 to 19 June 2003." "The monographs in this volume summarize data on the safety of a number of food additives, including [alpha]-amylase from Bacillus licheniformis containing a genetically engineered [alpha]-amylase gene from B. licheniformis, annatto extracts, curcumin, diacetyltartaric and fatty acid esters of glycerol, laccase form Myceliophthora thermophila expressed in Aspergillus oryzae, mixed xylanase, [beta]-glucanase enzyme preparation, produced by a strain of Humicola insolens, neotame, polyvinyl alcohol, D-tagatose and xylanase from Thermomyces lanuginosus expressed in Fusarium venenatum. Monographs on six groups of related flavouring agents evaluated by the Procedure for the Safety Evaluation of Flavouring Agents are also included, together with a monograph on the safety evaluation of natural flavouring complexes. This volume also contains monographs summarizing the toxicological and intake data for a nutritional source of iron, ferrous glycinate, and a disinfectant for drinking-water, sodium dichloroisocyanurate, and for the contaminants cadmium and methylmercury." "This volume and others in the WHO Food Additives Series contain information that is useful to those produce and use food additives and veterinary drugs and those involved with controlling contaminants in food, government and food regulatory officers, industrial testing laboratories, toxicological laboratories, and universities."--Jacket
Principles for evaluating health risks to reproduction associated with exposure to chemicals by Paul M. D Foster( Book )

Principles of characterizing and applying human exposure models by International Program on Chemical Safety( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this manual is to provide guidance to risk assessors on the use of quantitative toxicokinetic and toxicodynamic data to address interspecies and interindividual differences in dose and concentration-response assessment. Section 1 focuses on the relevance of this guidance in the context of the broader risk assessment paradigm and other initiatives of the International Program on Chemical Safety (IPCS) project on the Harmonization of Approaches to the Assessment of Risk from Exposure to Chemicals. Technical background material is presented in section 2, followed by generic guidance for the development of chemical-specific adjustment factors in section 3 and accompanying summary figures. Illustrative case-studies are included in an Appendix, and a glossary of terms is also provided.--Publisher's description

Resorcinol by S. K Hahn( Book )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resorcinol is a white crystalline compound used largely in the rubber industry and in wood bonding applications and is an important source of chemical intermediate in the manufacture of speciality chemicals. Other uses of the chemical include the manufacture of dyestuffs, pharmaceuticals, flame retardants, agricultural chemicals, fungicidal creams and lotions, and hair dye formulations. This Concise International Assessment Document (CICAD) evaluates the scientific literature on the health and environmental effects of resorcinol based on selected national and regional evaluations. Uncertainties in the risk assessment are set out for both human health and the environment--Publisher's description
IPCS mode of action framework by International Program on Chemical Safety( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of structured frameworks in chemical risk assessment promotes transparent, harmonized approaches. This publication presents two IPCS frameworks originally published in Critical reviews in toxicology. The frameworks provide a means of ensuring a transparent evaluation of the data, identification of key data gaps and of information that would be of value in the further risk assessment of the chemical in question.--Publisher's description
2-butenal by J Kielhorn( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2-Butenal (also known as crotonaldehyde) is an ab-unsaturated aldehyde and consequently a very reactive compound. It is a chemical intermediate used chiefly in the manufacture of sorbates, solvents, and, to a lesser extent, pharmaceutical products and aroma chemicals. This publication studies the pharmacokinetics, environmental exposure, chemical toxicology and carcinogenicity of 2-butenal. However, to enable an understanding and evaluation of this aldehyde in the context of environmental health, other aldehydes, such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and acrolein, are mentioned for comparison.--Publisher's description
The WHO recommended classification of pesticides by hazard and guidelines to classification 2009 by International Program on Chemical Safety( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The WHO Recommended Classification of Pesticides by Hazard was approved by the 28th World Health Assembly in 1975 and has since gained wide acceptance. When it was published in the WHO Chronicle, 29, 397-401 (1975), an annex, which was not part of the Classification, illustrated its use by listing examples of classification of some pesticidal active ingredients and their formulations. Later suggestions were made by Member States and pesticide registration authorities that further guidance should be given on the classification of individual pesticides. Guidelines were first issued in 1978, and have since been revised and reissued every few years. Up until the present revision the original guidelines approved by the World Health Assembly in 1975 have been followed without amendment

Elemental speciation in human health risk assessment( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation The purpose of this book is to assess, evaluate, and give guidance on the role of elemental speciation and speciation analysis in human health hazard and risk assessment. The book is directed at risk assessors and regulators to emphasize the importance of consideration of speciation in their deliberations. To date, this issue has not been a part of most hazard and risk assessments. Further aims of the publication are to encourage the analysis of speciation of elements to increase knowledge on the effect of speciation on mode of action and to increase understanding of health effects
Dermal absorption by J Kielhorn( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new volume in the Environmental Health Criteria Series presents an overview of dermal absorption and its consideration in the risk assessment of chemicals. It describes the methods available to assess dermal absorption, the significance of skin as a route of exposure and the interpretation of results of dermal absorption studies for risk assessment. In addition, it presents and discusses current topics of interest in the field of dermal absorption. This book will be useful to biology and toxicology scientists and researchers, as well as to regulatory authorities and the chemical industry
Dermal exposure by International Program on Chemical Safety( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Environmental Health Criteria (EHC) series publication addresses dermal exposure to chemicals. It describes sources and pathways of dermal exposure, models and tools to estimate dermal exposure and methods for dermal exposure prevention and reduction Furthermore, the EHC introduces skin diseases associated with dermal exposure. This EHC aims to provide information to national regulatory authorities to assist in conducting health risk assessments and managing the risk involving dermal exposure to chemicals."--Publisher's description
