TRACK: Environmental Health and Risk Management
The development and validation of biomarkers of human exposure to environmental chemicals often moves faster than the medical community’s ability to understand and interpret their health relevance. Clinicians need to have an understanding of the potential health implications of the clinical laboratory tests they order, including biomarkers of exposure to pesticides. This presentation will inform the audience
of the toxicology of two important classifications of insecticides. Attendees will learn about biomarkers of exposure and effect that have been developed for these pesticides, with an emphasis on their clinical
applications and limitations. This session may be of particular interest to residents and recent graduates.
