The Society of Toxicology (SOT) is developing an issue statement titled “The Complexities in Assessing the Risk to Public Health of Low-Level Arsenic Exposure.” This statement is intended to replace the existing Tox Topic/Express Statement “Signaling Mechanisms for Metabolic Dysfunction Following Low-Level Arsenic Exposures: From Mouse to Man.” As part of the development process, SOT membership has seven (7) days to provide comment and input on the draft version of “The Complexities in Assessing the Risk to Public Health of Low-Level Arsenic Exposure.” All feedback should be emailed to Michelle Werts, SOT communications manager, who will compile the feedback and provide it to the statement’s Writing Team.

The Complexities in Assessing the Risk to Public Health of Low-Level Arsenic Exposure” statement was developed by an SOT Council-appointed Writing Team consisting of Aaron Barchowsky, PhD, University of Pittsburgh; Barbara D. Beck, PhD, DABT, ERT, ATS, Gradient; R. Clark Lantz, PhD, University of Arizona; and Koren K. Mann, PhD, McGill University. This draft also was reviewed by multiple other SOT members with expertise in this area and SOT Council.

After SOT member feedback is incorporated into the draft, SOT Council will conduct a final review of the document and vote on its approval as an SOT Issue Statement, at which point the individual author names will be removed and it will become SOT’s official information on the subject.
