  1. 1. Pluripotent Stem Cells of Embryonic Origin : Applications in Developmental Toxicology

    Author : Måns Jergil; Lennart Dencker; Aldert Piersma; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Embryonic stem cell; Microarray; Toxicogenomics; Valproic acid; Developmental toxicology; Teratogenicity; Neural tube defects; Histone deacetylase inhibitor; In vitro toxicology; Toxicology; Toxikologi; Toxicology; Toxikologi;

    Abstract : General toxicity evaluation and risk assessment for human exposure is essential when developing new pharmaceuticals and chemicals. Developmental toxicology is an important part of this risk assessment which consumes large resources and many laboratory animals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Coxsackievirus B3 Infection and Host Defence Responses Change the Metabolism of PBDE

    Author : Magnus Lundgren; Nils-Gunnar Ilbäck; Hans Tjälve; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : It has been suggested that the rising amounts of chemicals in the environment may affect host resistance and increase susceptibility to infections. Studies have also shown that infections can change the toxicity of pollutants. READ MORE

  3. 3. Postmortem toxicology : aspects on interpretation

    Author : Per Holmgren; Jörg Mörland; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Postmortem toxicology is a matter of analytical chemistry and the consequent interpretation of the results. Thus, both parts are of great importance to come to the right conclusion or the most probable explanation of the analytical results. READ MORE

    Abstract : Today, assessment of the health of coastal waters is recognized as being important for both the conservation of nature and well-being of humans. Anthropogenic pollution has been the focus of extensive research for some time and a variety of programs for the monitoring and assessment of environmental pollution have been developed. READ MORE

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

    Author : Linda Schenk; Christina Rudén; Michael Gilek; Maria Albin; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; occupational exposure limit; risk assessment; risk management; chemicals regulation; regulatory toxicology; European Union; Toxicology; 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
