Toxicology program features wide range of human health and environment topical sessions
Date:2/20/2009

Reston, VA (February 19, 2009) - Nearly 6,500 toxicologists from around the world will be gathering in Baltimore, Maryland March 15-19, to create an unparalleled venue for discussion of a number of health and environmental topics of concern to the public. The Society of Toxicology's 2009 Annual Meeting and ToxExpo brings together thousands of scientists from universities, government, and industry to showcase a year's worth of achievements in research and education. Some of the topics that will be covered include the following:

The National Children's Study

The first of its kind in the U.S., this study has been designed to track children's health from womb to adulthood. The study will involve 100,000 children from across the country and is the largest long-term study of children's health and development ever conducted in the United States. The study's hypotheses incorporate the following main outcomespregnancy outcomes, neurodevelopment and behavior, asthma, obesity and growth, injury and reproductive development. At this roundtable session, toxicologists and others involved in this study will explore the study design and begin to examine the data that can be gathered so that questions like the following can be addressed: Can very early exposure to some allergens actually help children remain asthma-free? How do genes and the environment interact to promote or prevent violent behavior in teens? Are lack of exercise and poor diet the only reasons why many children are overweight? Do infections impact developmental progress, asthma, obesity and heart disease?

Biomarkers: New Breakthroughs in the World of Air Pollution Studies

Biomarker measurement allows scientists to better understand the factors that influence the health outcomes from air pollutant exposures. Toxicologists will examine new biomarker strategies and how they can be used to study health affects that come from air pollution. Panelists will explore
