Assessment of combined exposure to multiple chemicals

A recent joint publication from governmental institutions, regulatory agencies, academia and research institutes maps how different ongoing EU research projects contribute to the current data needs and methodologies for assessing the risk from combined exposure to multiple chemicals. The authors also identify remaining challenges that need addressing. These projects contribute to the development of in silico, in vitro and exposure assessment methodologies applicable in a tiered framework. They also support the development of joint epidemiological-toxicological approaches for mixture risk assessment and help researchers prioritise mixtures of concern.
