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.
Once this is done, the final report, which addresses both public and peer review comments, will be published and available from the EPA Web site.
