Predicting human dose-response relationships from multiple biological models: Issues with Cryptosporidium parvum
September 28, 2000
USDA Center at Riverside
The purpose of this meeting was to facilitate discussion with the scientific community and the public on dose-response modeling of foodborne pathogens. We discussed the use of human and nonhuman models of infection and disease to predict human dose-response relationships, focusing on the water- and foodborne parasite C. parvum as a model organism for other foodborne pathogens.
This meeting was organized and hosted by the Risk Assessment Consortium.
