The Environmental Criteria and Assessment Office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a toxicity data base to aid in the development of risk assessment methodologies and the assessment of health hazards from hazardous waste sites and chemical spills. The data base currently contains detailed animal toxicity data on nearly 200 chemicals and epidemiologic data on 30 chemicals. All relevant publications and original research articles describing the toxicity of a specific chemical were examined. Useful dose-effect data were extracted and encoded, and entered into EPA's IBM computer. Graphic summaries are generated by plotting exposure level vs. exposure duration. Statistical models to calculate human equivalent dose and duration have been programmed into the data base so that data on several species can be displayed on a single graph.
