Methods for toxicological risk assessment

Toxicological evaluations involve uncertainties, particularly if they are based on animal experiments. FoBiG is engaged in developing methods for toxicological risk assessment and seeks to employ state-of-the-art methods in assessment processes:

  • Dose-response modelling (benchmark procedures; with software such as BMDS and PROAST), in order to effectively use dose-response data from experiments

  • Extrapolation methods

These developments and methods are integrated in the derivation of guidance and limit values.
