In the same Federal Register notice, the NTP announced its intention to review magnesium sulfate, the most commonly used magnesium salt during pre term labor. The NTP asks for comment from the public on qualified scientists to serve on the three expert review panels being constituted for these Substances. It also asks for comment on the toxicology, current production, human exposure and environmental occurrence of these substances.
