Abstract
Exposure assessment is a critical component of agricultural epidemiologic research. Three sessions of the International Symposium on Agricultural Exposures and Cancer were devoted to the following three aspects of exposure assessment: (i) state-of-the-art measurements, (ii) biomonitoring studies on farm families, and (iii) residential and nonagricultural exposures. The following five major themes materialized during the general discussion after the three exposure sessions: (i) route of exposure and aggregate exposure, (ii) pesticide toxicity testing on humans, (iii) farm versus nonfarm residential pesticide exposure, (iv) study design, and (v) biological plausibility. Symposium gaps were identified, and considerations and recommendations were developed as a result of the discussion.
