AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Would evalutation of environemental exposure history measured in deciduous teeth improve disease liability assessment?

Sophisticated laboratory techniques can now extract levels of exposure to numerous trace organic and inorganic contaminants and medications in the layers of tooth enamel- giving timestamped exposure (temporal) sensitivity. This represents a massive step forward because recall, or chronic measurement of place and exposure is not necessary, but is nevertheless important in defining exposure-outcome relationships. Participants can provide baby teeth or dentist extracted teeth for analysis.
