Aggregate and Cumulative Assessments
The goal of all LifeLine Software and auxiliary software pieces is to provide the opportunity for users to examine exposures possible within the population of interest and the impact that these exposures can have on the health of the community. Multiple sources and routes of exposure to a chemical (aggregate assessments) within a community can currently be evaluated for benefit/risk.
LifeLine V5™, CDAS™, and CBAS™ all have this capacity and are supported by the auxiliary models (DRG™ and ARG™) allowing the user to customize the model to the community of interest. Using information relevant to the realities of the community's life styles yields relevant risk assessments. Multiple chemicals within a family of chemicals that work by the same biological mechanisms (cumulative assessments) can also be evaluated using these same LifeLine tools. The cumulative assessment tools continue to evolve.
