Summary

What agents should be measured?

How should measurement be performed and what averaging time should be used for the measurement?

What sampling strategy should be employed to characterize exposures across individuals, locations, and time?

What durations of exposure should be characterized?

What statistical descriptors should be used to relate exposure to effect?

Exposure Assessment for Epidemiology and Hazard Control examines various approaches to answering these and other important questions. Other topics discussed include the measurement of current exposures (e.g., vapors, gases, aerosols, and complex mixtures); the application of toxicological relationships, including biological markers and sample models; an epidemiological evaluation of exposure-effect relationships, including new methods for effect evaluation and models for population exposure estimates; and strategies for exposure assessment, such as biological sampling interpretation through toxicokinetic processes. This important new volume contains essential information for industrial hygienists, epidemiologists, occupational health physicians, toxicologists, and immunologists.
