This page provides a description and a link to a "ATSDR - Toxicological Profiles" database that provides information needed when modeling exposure levels or performing exposure assessment.

Short Description

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) produces "toxicological profiles" for hazardous substances found at National Priorities List (NPL) sites. These hazardous substances are ranked based on frequency of occurrence at NPL sites, toxicity, and potential for human exposure. Toxicological profiles are developed from a priority list of 275 substances. So far, 289 toxicological profiles have been published or are under development as "finals" or "drafts for public comment". These profiles cover more than 250 substances. Profiles include also chemical and physical indormation and information for production, import, use and disposal.
