Subject: TERA Peer Consultation Meeting
 
TERA to Conduct Peer Consultation on a Draft Framework to Evaluate
Adult-Child Differences in Inhalation Dosimetry of Gases: Application to
Selected Systemically-Acting Volatile Organic Chemicals

 

Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA) will conduct a peer
consultation on a Draft Framework to Evaluate Adult-Child Differences in
Inhalation Dosimetry of Gases: Application to Selected
Systemically-Acting Volatile Organic Chemicals.  A panel of expert
scientists will discuss and evaluate the revised draft framework and
provide direction for finalizing it.  

 

In 2005, the same panel of experts met and held a peer consultation on
the original draft framework.  The authors have revised the framework
based on the feedback received during the 2005 peer consultation.  The
original and revised framework and background materials were prepared by
scientists from Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA) and
include ideas from several leading researchers in toxicokinetics and
physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling.  The outcome of
this peer consultation will be used to further refine the process of
children's risk assessment.  Funding for the peer consultation is
through a cooperative agreement between the U.S. EPA and TERA.

 

The peer consultation will be a web meeting, using a conference call for
the audio, and linking to a web meeting program site for the
presentation slides.  The web meeting will be on Tuesday, August 21,
2007, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  The meeting will be open to the
public.  

 

TERA has established a website for meeting registration at
http://www.tera.org/peer/adultchildtk/actkwelcome.htm.  The revised
framework, panel membership, and additional meeting details will be
posted on the website when they become available.  Interested persons
are encouraged to submit written technical comments for the panel's
consideration.  A specific time during the meeting will be set to allow
any observers to ask clarifying technical questions or make comments.
