Title: School-Based Study of Complex Environment al Exposures and Related Health Effects in Children (Part A) Exposure

URL: http://cfpub.epa.gov/ncer_abstracts/index.cfm/fuseaction/display.abstractDetail/...

Abstract: The objectives of this study are to (1) document complex exposure patterns involving multiple acute exposures and exposures to chemical mixtures for school children (K - 5) from two low-income, racially diverse neighborhoods in Minneapolis, (2) examine temporal variability by monitoring complex exposures three times over a twelve-month period, (3) apportion the relative contribution to measured personal exposure of outdoor community air, air inside the child's school, and air inside the child's residence, (4) evaluate the relationship between measured exposures and internal dose using biological markers of exposure in blood and urine, and (5) compare children's exposures between a new school designed to enhance indoor air quality and an older school with more traditional architecture, mechanical systems, and furnishings
