An Approach to Using Toxicogenomic Data in U.S. EPA Human Health Risk Assessments: A Dibutyl Phthalate Case Study (Final Report) 2009
EPA is announcing the release of the final report, An Approach to Using Toxicogenomic Data in U.S. EPA Human Health Risk Assessments: A Dibutyl Phthalate Case Study.
This final report is a description of an approach to evaluate genomic data for use in risk assessment and a case study to illustrate the approach. The dibutyl phthalate (DBP) case study example focuses on male reproductive developmental effects and the qualitative application of genomic data because of the available data on DBP. The case study presented in this document is a separate activity from any of the ongoing IRIS human health assessments for the phthalates.
This final report describes an approach to evaluating toxicogenomic data for use in risk assessment and a case study of DBP. A multi-disciplinary team of scientists developed the approach for utilizing genomic data in risk assessment and performed the DBP case study. The principles of the approach include examining the genomic and toxicity data sets together, defining a set of questions to direct the evaluation, and performing new analyses of genomic data, when relevant. The report includes the development of exploratory methods and preliminary results from genomic data analyses. In addition, recommendations, research needs, and future directions for applying genomic data to risk assessment were identified. The approach and case study may be used as a template for evaluating and analyzing genomic data in future chemical assessments as well as by researchers performing genomic studies for use in risk assessment.
