12 Bigelow, Sharon M.; Sadler, Katherine A.Fitness for duty program evaluationImpairment of employees is on the rise. Many corporations have implemented Fitness For Duty (FFD) programs to help control the costs associated with impairment. Costs can result from accidents on the job, increased health claims, workers compensation claims, absenteeism, and low productivity. Resear...Work capacity evaluation2001-12
13 Biggs, Jason StanleyLung-selective regulation of the human CYP3A genesThe cytochrome P450 enzyme system in the human lung is an essential component in lung-directed damage caused by several inhaled xenobiotics. However, the biochemical mechanisms responsible for selective expression of these P450s, especially in lung, have not been adequately characterized. Members of...Cytochrome P-450; Lungs - Diseases - Etiology2005-08
