Abstract
Biochemical and toxicological study of the trichloroethylene-induced behavioral decrements in human beings. Data are given for acute 8- hour exposure to trichloroethylene (79016) vapor; subjective responses such as headache, nausea, dizziness, abdominal pain, chest pain, and eye, nose, and throat irritation; final analysis of variance for complex reaction time, tachistoscope perception, digit span test, finger dexterity, coordination test, and inspection test. In all six tests variability among subjects is found to be highly significant, suggesting the need for minimizing the effect of subject variation in such experiments. Trichloroethylene vapor concentration is found to be an insignificant source of variation in five of six tests.
