The U.S. EPA, through its Environmental Monitoring Systems Laboratory-Las Vegas (EMSL-LV) and its Health Effects Research Laboratory-Research Triangle Park (HERL-RTP) has been exploring the feasibility of using biological markers to monitor exposure to environmental chemicals. The participants began by compiling a list of chemicals of known or suspected health hazards and for which the potential for human exposure exists. The chemicals on the master list were then systematically evaluated for: (1) the potential for adduct-formation in vivo, (2) the availability of supportive adduct research data, (3) the identifiability of exposed population(s), and (4) the level of genetic activity. After considering all the relevant data, the participants selected and prioritized for further study a small group of chemicals considered to have the greatest potential for use in pilot, adduct-based, biological monitoring studies in human populations.
