SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information on Proposed Webinar: TCE is a candidate substance under evaluation for the Report on Carcinogens (RoC) (http:// ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/37899). Several comprehensive reviews have identified non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and cancer of the liver and kidney as sites of concern in humans, and the RoC evaluation will be limited to these outcomes. As part of the evaluation, the ORoC proposes to convene a webinar to obtain input on scientific issues related to evaluating human epidemiologic studies of exposure to TCE and cancer risk and use this input to help inform its cancer evaluation of TCE. The webinar will include a series of presentations by invited speakers that address the quality of the methods used in the epidemiology studies to assess exposure to TCE and cancer outcome (primarily lymphohematopoietic cancer) and information on TCE exposure in the studies. Speakers on exposure and cancer-outcome classification will be asked to (1) identify the methods used to assess exposure or outcome, (2) discuss the validity and reliability of the methods used to classify exposure (such as job title, job exposure matrix, biomonitoring, and expert assessment) or cancer outcome (such as mortality or incidence data), and (3) examine how misclassification of exposure (either qualitative or quantitative) or cancer outcome would affect interpretation of the study’s findings. The speaker addressing TCE exposure will be asked to compare measured or estimated levels of exposure to TCE and its prevalence in the epidemiologic studies and to discuss how these data may explain potential heterogeneity of findings across studies and inform the assessment for a specific type of cancer. It is envisioned that the webinar will include time for questions to speakers by webinar attendees and open discussion.
