Gene context of Maximum Allowable Concentration

  • The pre-DCA HDPEL value was highest in group IML and lowest in group NI; however, no significant differences in MPEL/MAEL values were found [12].
  • These values, which are similar to those reported previously using urinary beta 2-microglobulin as the indicator, may be of use in establishing the biological threshold, i.e. maximum allowable concentration, for urinary Cd in the environmentally exposed Japanese population [13].
  • In 1995 the hygiene occupational standard values of carbon disulfide (CS2) were established in Poland: the maximum allowable concentration, eight-hour time weighted average (MAC-TWA)--18 mg/m3, and the short time exposure level (STEL)--30 mg/m3 [14].
