Integral’s services also extend into human health risk assessments for environmental contaminants. Senior Consultant Kristian Fried, Ph.D., Dr. rer. nat., DABT, ERT, has authored a white paper about a new mammalian toxicokinetics database that contains information on more than 1,400 chemicals—mainly pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and persistent environmental contaminants.
