Characterization of Infants' Exposure to Trichloroethylene: Implications for Cancer Risk Assessment

This is a field sampling based project to take water and breastmilk samples from women in Nogales, AZ and analyze them for TCE. A questionnaire is being developed to help identify risk factors. Ultimately, these results will be combined with a PBPK model for TCE in the infant and used to compute cancer risk from various routes of exposure.
