Pesticide Biotransformation and Disposition Excerpt :

Biotransformation of Pesticides is an updated, "one-stop" resource for academic, industry and regulatory scientists involved in research and regulatory activities related to pesticide biotransformation and human health. This book provides an in depth look at how pesticides are biotransformed, which is essential to understanding exposure, dose, toxicity and health risks. This essential reference contains the biotransformation of pesticides from uptake to excretion, including toxicokinetics and emphasizes metabolism in non-target species, including experimental animals and humans. Includes four new chapters and expanded material on pesticide biotransformation and disposition, an active area of pesticide toxicology that is becoming increasingly important for human health risk assessment Offers a practical and portable guide covering the most up-to-date research results on metabolic transformations of pesticides Provides scientists and regulatory researchers with the information they need to conduct accurate risk assessments and make informed decisions on which exposures to study further in human populations

Intentional Human Dosing Studies for EPA Regulatory Purposes Excerpt :

The EPA commissioned The National Academies to provide advice on the vexing question of whether and, if so, under what circumstances EPA should accept and consider intentional human dosing studies conducted by companies or other sources outside the agency (so-called third parties) to gather evidence relating to the risks of a chemical or the conditions under which exposure to it could be judged safe. This report recommends that such studies be conducted and used for regulatory purposes only if all of several strict conditions are met, including the following: The study is necessary and scientifically valid, meaning that it addresses an important regulatory question that can't be answered with animal studies or nondosing human studies; The societal benefits of the study outweigh any anticipated risks to participants. At no time, even when benefits beyond improved regulation exist, can a human dosing study be justified that is anticipated to cause lasting harm to study participants; and All recognized ethical standards and procedures for protecting the interests of study participants are observed. In addition, EPA should establish a Human Studies Review Board (HSRB) to evaluate all human dosing studiesâ€"both at the beginning and upon completion of the experimentsâ€"if they are carried out with the intent of affecting the agency's policy-making.

Bionanotechnology in Cancer Excerpt :

The cancer research world is looking forward to bionanotechnology to find the best solutions for a complete cure from cancer, which is not possible with the current established treatment methods. The past decade of research on nano imaging and drug delivery in cancer has witnessed many interesting papers and reviews, but there has not been a concise resource that discusses all fields related to nano cancer research in diagnosis and drug delivery. This book fills this gap and presents the latest bionano research in cancer, focusing on nanodiagnostics and nanotherapy. The book is organized into two sections. The section on nanodiagnostics focuses on topics such as diagnostic methods in cancer-related therapy and use of radiolabeled nanoparticles, magnetic nanoparticles, acoustically reflective nanoparticles, X-ray computed tomography, and optical nanoprobes for diagnosis. The section on nanotherapy focuses on nanomaterials in chemotherapy, magnetic nanoparticles for hyperthermia against cancer, phototherapy, nanotechnology-mediated radiation therapy, nanoparticle-mediated small-RNA deliveries for molecular therapies, and theranostics. The book will serve as the gateway to enter the beautiful and elegant field of bionanoscience, which is considered the last hope for the fight against cancer and will be a highly useful resource for the students, researchers, teachers, and curious readers working in this field or related fields.

Food Safety Assessment Of Pesticide Residues Excerpt :

Pesticides are now accepted as an integral part of modern agricultural production. This book provides analysis of the steps taken by national and international bodies working towards a cohesive global strategy for evaluating the safety of residues in food that result from approved pesticide uses. Also described is the role of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Health Organization (WHO) and Codex Alimentarius in developing standards that protect the health of the consumers and ensure fair practices in the food trade. It goes on to look at the promotion of good agricultural practice in the use of pesticides and the need for control in their practical use. These include sampling, testing the compliance of marketed products against legal limits and verifying the effectiveness of the safety-based regulatory measures. This is a specialist book for those looking to go into the field of international food safety, for students and lecturers studying the topic, for policy makers working on public health and agricultural issues, and personnel responsible for taking samples and performing the analysis of pesticide formulations and residues.
