Many studies have been done on acute or chronic exposure of large doses of these chemicals and toxicity profiles have been identified. However it is difficult to assess the risk of exposure of these chemicals at low doses, over a long period of time, or consider the risk on patients who are already immuno-compromised.

This research focuses on an analysis of textile toxicity as designated by agency, and which healthcare choices minimize the toxicity.
