Special Issue "Biomonitoring Methods for Measuring Human Exposures to Consumer Products"
A special issue of Toxics (ISSN 2305-6304).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2015)
In the United States, over 75,000 man-made chemicals are registered for use by consumers in everyday products. These chemicals are used in a number of different types of consumer products including personal care and cleaning items, toys, food packaging, and household furnishings. It would be proactive and prudent to reduce human exposures, particularly children, to these chemicals in consumer products. Few data, however, are currently available on human exposures and potential health risks to these chemicals in consumer products using biomonitoring. Blood, urine, and exhaled breath condensate are common biological matrices used to measure for chemicals or their metabolites in humans. In this special issue, we are inviting authors to submit manuscripts that have developed new or improved biomonitoring methods for measuring human exposures to chemical(s) found in consumer products. Priority will be given to papers focusing on biomonitoring research involving children.
