This draft report of Approaches for the Application of Physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Models and Supporting Data in Risk Assessment (PDF, 110pp, 1MB, About PDF) addresses the application and evaluation of PBPK models for risk assessment purposes. These models represent an important class of dosimetry models that are useful for predicting internal dose at target organs for risk assessment applications.
Topics covered include:
- the types of data required use of PBPK models in risk assessment,
- evaluation of PBPK models for use in risk assessment, and
- the application of these models to address uncertainties resulting from extrapolations (e.g. interspecies extrapolation) often used in risk assessment.
- a compilation of chemical partition coefficients and rate constants,
- algorithms for estimating chemical-specific parameters, and
- a list of publications relating to PBPK modeling.
|2003||EPA award releases a solicitation for a contract to develop a report for the Application of Physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic Data and Models in Risk Assessment|
|2004||Draft document released for internal review|
|2005||EPA released the external review draft for public comment and peer review|
Then the final report, which addresses both public and peer review comments, will be published and available from the NCEA Web site.
