Toxicity testing of microparticles and poorly soluble liquids in the water environment
A Task Force set up by the European Centre for Ecotoxicology and Toxicology of Chemicals (ECETOC) has provided new insights into scientific testing for the impact of undissolved particles in the aquatic environment. ECETOC launched the Task Force in response to increasing concerns among the ...
A variety of chemicals are known to cause allergic sensitisation of the respiratory tract associated with allergic rhinitis and asthma. It is generally accepted that the development of sensitisation of the respiratory tract to chemicals is a threshold phenomenon. That is, a certain minimum level ...
There is general agreement that the formation of non-extractable residues (NER) in soil or sediment can have a significant impact on a chemical’s behaviour in the environment and it is therefore important that they should form an integral part of the environmental risk assessment (ERA) of ...
In environmental risk assessment, chemical residues in soils and sediments are considered insignificant if they are bound to the solid matrix and hence are not available to plants and soil organisms. Improved understanding of the mechanisms of binding which can contribute to the rationale for ...
Exposure to chemicals can occur through the mouth, nose or the skin. While a lot of work has been done studying health risks of chemicals taken up through the mouth and nose, less has been done on health risks caused by chemicals getting into the body through the skin. Chemical legislation, most ...
The findings of an ECETOC task force on Linear Polydimethylsiloxanes have been published as ECETOC JACC Report No. 55. This report presents a critical evaluation of the toxicity, physico-chemical properties, and environmental fate and effects of linear polydimethylsiloxanes (PDMSs), a type of ...
As of 1 November 2006, Dr. Neil G. Carmichael, previous Head of Toxicology at Bayer CropScience will succeed Dr. Michael Gribble as Secretary General of ECETOC (The European Centre for Ecotoxicology and Toxicology of Chemicals). Dr. Carmichael obtained a B.Sc. in Zoology at the University of ...
