This code is a quantitative predictive model of toxicity/pathogenicity of minerals fibers based on their physical/chemical and morphological parameters. This model was conceived to deliver a fiber potential toxicity/pathogenicity index (FPTI) to be integrated with the biological approach so to create a quantitative predictive model of behavior of mineral fibers in a biological system. The FPTI model is thought to be a predictive tool aimed at ranking the toxicity/pathogenicity potential of fibers like asbestos or unregulated/unclassified mineral fibers.
