  1. 1. Mechanisms behind Cadmium-Induced Teratogenicity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Estíbaliz López Fernández de Villaverde; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Toxicology; Cadmium; Teratogenesis; Exencephaly; Mechanisms; Toxikologi; PHARMACY Toxicology; FARMACI Toxikologi;

    Abstract : Heavy metals polluting our environment cause concern for developing organisms. Among them, cadmium with extremely slow elimination from the body, causes lower birth weight in humans but has not been classify as a human teratogen. Studies in different laboratory animals have shown that cadmium indeed is a potent teratogen. READ MORE

  2. 2. Proteomic Characterization of Induced Developmental Neurotoxicity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Henrik Alm; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]

    Abstract : The developing brain goes through a number of developmental periods during which it displays an increased sensitivity to exogenous disturbances. On such period is the so called “Brain growth spurt” (BGS) which in humans takes place starting from the third trimester of pregnancy and throughout the first few years of life. READ MORE

  3. 3. Setting occupational exposure limits Practices and outcomes of toxicological risk assessment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Linda Schenk; KTH.; Södertörns högskola.; [2011]

    Abstract : Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) are used as an important regulatory instrument to protect workers’ health from adverse effects of chemical exposures. The main objective of this thesis is to study risk assessment practices in the setting of OEL in order to produce knowledge that will help improve the consistency and transparency of OELs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Management of chemical risk through occupational exposure limits

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Linda Schenk; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; occupational exposure limit; risk assessment; risk management; chemicals regulation; regulatory toxicology; European Union; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Pharmacological research Toxicology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Farmakologisk forskning Toxikologi;

    Abstract : Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) are used as an important regulatory instrument to protect workers’ health from adverse effects of chemical exposures. The OELs mirror the outcome of the risk assessment and risk management performed by the standard setting actor. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulatory tools for managing chemicals risk at the workplace

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology
