Abstract:

The primary aim of this project is to investigate the relationship between various modifiable factors and the absorption of permethrin as a result of wearing permethrin-treated Army Combat Uniforms ACU-Permethrin. The research objective is to examine the effect of body weightBMI and total energy expenditure on permethrin absorption and dose, as determined by measurement of urinary biomarkers 3PBA and cis- and trans-DCCA levels. There are two studies involved in our project the first is a study among Army recruits during Basic Training Study 1 and the second involves Army National Guard Soldiers during Annual Training Study 2. Data collection for Study 1 was completed in 2015. Data collection for Study 2 is in progress.
