Toxicological and Health Professionals


Health Professional with bookThis section provides technical information to scientists and public health and medical professionals on the effects of hazardous substances. This information includes health effects and health guidance values, the potential for exposure, analysis, regulations, data needs, comprehensive references, a priority list, and more.


Resources for Toxicological and Health Professionals

  • Toxicological Profile
    • Succinctly characterizes the toxicologic and adverse health effects information for a hazardous substance.
  • Addendum to the Profile
    • The purpose of Toxicological Profiles Addenda is to provide, to the public and other federal, state, and local agencies a non-peer reviewed supplement of the scientific data that were published in the open peer-reviewed literature since the release of the profile.
  • ToxGuide
    • Quick reference guide providing information such as chemical and physical properties, sources of exposure, routes of exposure, minimal risk levels, children's health, and health effects for a substance.
  • Priority List of Hazardous Substances
    • Prioritization of substances based on a combination of their frequency, toxicity, and potential for human exposure at National Priorities List (NPL) sites.
  • Minimal Risk Levels (MRL)
    • The MRL is an estimate of the daily human exposure to a hazardous substance that is likely to be without appreciable risk of adverse, non-cancer health effects over a specified duration of exposure. The information in this MRL serves as a screening tool to help public health professionals decide where to look more closely to evaluate possible risk of adverse health effects from human exposure.
  • Mixtures Guidance Manual
    • Provides guidance for assessment of joint toxicity of environmental chemicals to determine whether exposure to chemical mixtures may impact public health.
  • Scientific Assessments and Consultations
    • This section provides technical information to scientists and public health and medical professionals on the effects of DEET.
  • Interaction Profiles
    • Succinctly characterizes the toxicologic and adverse health effects information for mixtures of hazardous substances.
  • Priority Data Needs
    • The priority data needs represent essential information to improve the database for conducting public health assessments.
  • ToxZine
    • Summary of health effects, exposure, and recommendations in an easy-to-read magazine format.
