Biomonitoring Exposures Study (BEST) - 1.Pilot
Study of environmental chemical exposures in adults in the Central Valley
The Biomonitoring Exposures Study (BEST) – Pilot is a joint effort between Biomonitoring California and the Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) Division of Research. Pilot BEST is measuring environmental chemical exposures in 112 adult KPNC members living in California’s Central Valley. This is the first Biomonitoring California study to collect samples from participants randomly selected across gender, age, race/ethnicity, and location. Questionnaire and medical information as well as blood and urine samples were collected in 2011-2012. The study has been expanded to include more participants and diverse populations in Expanded BEST.
