1 Orientation—Inhalation Dosimetry and the “Target-Tissue Dose” PODs are typically derived from experimental results in laboratory animal studies where inhalation exposure has been to either gases or particles. The risk assessment process uses these PODs to derive human health guideline values. , animal-to-human) by simply dividing the animal exposure value by 10 (Dourson and Stara, 1983), implying, among other things, that humans are 10-fold more sensitive than animals. , pharmacodynamics). S.

To acknowledge and incorporate this situation, practitioners of risk assessment provide an integrative discussion of this aspect as a “risk characterization” of an assessment. S. EPA, 1995b) provide for and stress the importance of identifying uncertainties and variability and major assumptions in the subject assessment and presenting them as part of risk characterization. A risk characterization should attempt to be the repository and evaluation of the analytic-deliberative aspects of the assessment.

The NOAEL (no or low observed adverse effect level) of this data set are shown for comparison. When analyzing information from oral dosing, the terms BMD and BMDL are typically used. (Adapted from a figure provided by EPA colleague Jeffrey S. 5 Research to Improve Health Risk Assessments Current risk assessment procedures result from fundamental assumptions about how pollutants cause diseases in humans. These assumptions can be replaced with better scientific information as health effects research is conducted.
