The database provides a central source of systematically collected and organized body-burden data that facilitates the early identification of actual or potential human exposure to environmental contaminants and the assessment of the significance of such exposure. Data included are obtained through routine manual searches of selected scientific journals, augmented by computer searches. The database, which includes the separately published files, Chemicals Identified in Human Biological Media and Chemicals Identified in Feral and Food Animals, contains information on more than 1600 chemicals. The database is used in exposure, hazard and risk assessment; identifying potential human and environmental health problems including sources of contamination; planning research and comparing results; and in teaching at medical and public health schools. The database is under the aegis of the Interagency Collaborative Group on Environmental Carcinogenesis, National Cancer Institute (NCI), and is maintained by the Health and Environmental Information Section, Science Applications International Corporation under the direction of the Exposure Evaluation Division, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Funding is provided through interagency agreements involving NCI, EPA, and the US Department of Energy. (ERA citation 11:028339)
