Supplementary Material

The code of the human PBPK model for inhaled VOCs is provided in this supplemental material. The model is written in advance continuous simulation language to be run in ACSL® (acslX®, version 2.5, Aegis Technologies Group, Inc, Huntsville, AL). The model parameters are defined in the “initial” section and the differential equations are written in the “dynamic” section. PBPK consisted in four tissue compartments (liver, fat, richly, and poorly perfused tissues) and a gas exchange lung interconnected by blood flows. Two descriptions of hepatic clearance are available: one using the intrinsic clearance (CLint) and the other the extraction ratio.
