Government Reference Publication

Excerpt
Excerpt: The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) convened a panel of scientists in early 2003 to advise the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the scientific and ethical issues surrounding the use of toxicologic studies conducted by third parties on human subjects (NAS 2003). These studies are generally sponsored by chemical manufacturers to provide data for setting regulatory standards or for registering chemicals for commercial use. The test substance is frequently a pesticide or industrial chemical with no medicinal value. Studies of the pesticides dichlorvos (DDVP) and aldicarb are illustrative. The sponsors intent was to force the U.S. EPA to consider these data for setting exposure standards (Mitka 2003).
