> Independent Peer Review of Assessment of Skin Cancer Risk from Use of Coal
> Tar-Containing Shampoos
> An expert peer review panel was convened on June 5 and 6, 2000 to review a
> document entitled "Estimation of Lifetime Skin Cancer Risk from the Use of
> Coal Tar-Containing Shampoos."  This document was prepared by the K.S.
> Group of ICF Consulting for Whitehall-Robins Healthcare, a subsidiary of
> American Home Products.  The Neutrogena Company was a co-sponsor of the
> review.  The meeting was held at the University of Cincinnati and was open
> to the public.  This independent peer review meeting was held under the
> International Toxicity Estimates for Risk (ITER) program of Toxicology
> Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA).
> The peer review panel discussed the document and offered a number of
> recommendations to the authors for consideration in revising the document.
> A revised document will be the subject of a follow-up conference call on
> Wednesday, July 26.
> The peer review panel is made up of scientists from industry, government,
> consulting, and academia, creating a balanced panel, while carefully
> managing potential conflict of interest issues.  Observers may listen to
> conference call.  Observers must pre-register by July 20 and there is a
> registration fee to cover the cost of the line and materials.
> This independent peer review is organized by TERA; a non-profit
> dedicated to the best use of toxicity data for risk assessment.  For more
> information or to register as an observer, contact Jacqueline Patterson at
> (513) 521-7426 or email patterson at tera.org.
