    Risk Anal 33:450-61. 2013
    ..1-1.0 μ g/dL for the dose leading to a loss of one IQ point. We conclude that current allowable blood lead concentrations need to be lowered and further prevention efforts are needed to protect children from lead toxicity...
  2. ncbi request reprint Benchmark dose calculation from epidemiological data
    E Budtz-Jørgensen
    Department of Biostatistics, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
    Biometrics 57:698-706. 2001
    ..We therefore recommend that several sets of biologically relevant default settings be used to illustrate the effect on the benchmark results and to stimulate research that will guide an a priori choice of proper default settings...

    Esben Budtz-Jørgensen
    Department of Biostatistics, University of Copenhagen, Øster Farimagsgade 5, entrance B, PO Box 2099, DK 1014 Copenhagen K, Denmark
    Biostatistics 8:675-88. 2007
    ..This methodology is illustrated with the data on neurobehavioral effects in children prenatally exposed to methylmercury, where results based on standard regression models cause an underestimation of the true risk...
  4. ncbi request reprint Confounder selection in environmental epidemiology: assessment of health effects of prenatal mercury exposure
    Esben Budtz-Jørgensen
    Department of Biostatistics, University of Copenhagen, and Faroese Hospital System, Torshavn, Faroe Islands
    Ann Epidemiol 17:27-35. 2007
    ..Whereas standard analysis usually is conducted as if the confounders were known a priori, selection uncertainty also must be taken into account...

    Esben Budtz-Jørgensen
    Department of Biostatistics, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
    Risk Anal 24:1689-96. 2004
