Estimations of absorbed daily dosage (ADD) of chemicals following contact with treated surfaces may be required for risk assessment and risk management. Measurements of ADD based upon biomonitoring are a more reliable data than estimates of ADD from environmental measurements since they require fewer default assumptions. Study participants performed a structured activity program (SAP) 24-h after an application of Tempo((R)) 20 WP (cyfluthrin; 3-(2,2-dichloroethenyl)-2,2-dimethyl-cyclopropanecarboxylic acid cyano(4-fluoro-3-phenoxy-phenyl)-methyl ester) on a medium pile, plush nylon carpet. Measurements of total cyfluthrin residue and transferable cyfluthrin residue (cotton cloth and CDFA roller; personal sock and short dosimetry) were made at 3, 7, 12, 23, 47.5, and 407.5 h. Total cyfluthrin residue extracted from (Soxhlet extraction) carpet was 11.1+/-2.7 microg/cm(2) 1 h prior to the SAP. Transferable cyfluthrin residue obtained through analysis of cotton cloths rolled with a weighted 30-pound cylinder was 0.11 microg/cm(2). Cyfluthrin residues from socks and shorts were 0.74+/-0.23 and 0.15+/-0.03 microg/cm(2), respectively. Urine was collected at 12-h intervals during a 72-h period following the SAP and was analyzed for the cyfluthrin biomarker, 4-fluoro-3-phenoxybenzoic acid (FPBA). The mean cyfluthrin equivalents excreted were 8.4+/-5.7 microg/person (yielding an absorbed dosage of 0.10 microg/kg; n=7). The elimination half-life was 16+/-5 h. All predicted ADDs based upon environmental measurements overestimated the ADDs measured by urinary excretion.
