Summary of Public Databases Routinely Searched

As part of the screening-level Exposure Characterizations prepared on HPV chemicals, the following databases were searched to determine whether they contained information concerning the specific HPV chemicals being evaluated. Individual Exposure Characterizations mention only those databases which included a reference to the chemical being evaluated.

These studies monitored more than 3,000 participants, in 18 U.S. urban and suburban cities and one Canadian province, for exposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pesticides, carbon monoxide, particles, phthalates (plasticizers) and polycyclic aromatic compounds (PAHs), among other pollutants. Data retrieved for the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program were searched.
