RHP Risk Management’s Frank Pagone, in collaboration with the international collective of twenty-three scientists were winners of the Society of Toxicology‘s Regulatory and Safety Evaluation Specialty Section (RSESS) Best Paper of the Year Award by the RSESS Executive Committee for their publication of Range of PFOA Safe Dose: An International Collaboration.

Among government agencies, industry and interested parties, the values vary widely on an estimated dose of perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) that would protect human health. A group of twenty-four scientists, including RHP’s Dr. Frank Pagone, were divided into three technical teams where they vetted, coalesced and analyzed relevant information and data from science, medicine, and research sources to independently develop ranges for estimated PFOA safe doses.

The results of this monumental collection of perspectives, knowledge and talent has been published in Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology: sciencedirect.com/science/article

RHP’s Frank Pagone and Ashish Jachak heard about the latest trends and insights of science and toxicology in the fields of chemical, regulatory, and academia toxicology while at the 2024 Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting.
