Detailed toxicological monographs have been published on some of the pesticides discussed at JMPR’s 2014 meeting in Rome. These summarise the relevant human and animal studies used as the scientific basis for relevant acceptable daily intakes (ADIs) and acute reference doses (ARfDs), and cover the following chemicals, many of which were evaluated for the first time:

  • aminocyclopyrachlor
  • cyflumetofen
  • dichlobenil
  • flufenoxuron
  • imazamox
  • mesotrione
  • metrafenone
  • mychlobutanil
  • pymetrozine
