Ramboll Environ’s P. Robinan Gentry, Janice W. Yager and Harvey Clewell co-authored the paper, Use of mode of action data to inform a dose-response assessment for bladder cancer following exposure to inorganic arsenic, published in the October 2014 edition of Toxicology In Vitro. Their piece was chosen as ENVIRON’s 2014 Publication of the Year by a review panel comprised of Principals Chris Whipple, Marco Barlettani, Miranda Henning, Robin Richards and Joe Rodricks.
The study assessed bladder cancer risk in relation to low arsenic levels, using state-of-the-art genomic data to compare low-dose and high-dose arsenic toxicity modes of action. Although inorganic arsenic data is widely available, it had not previously been applied to dose-response assessment. The authors found that the data supported a non-linear regulatory risk assessment approach.
