Abstract
These remarks opened the symposium on the Assessment of Reproductive Hazards in the Workplace sponsored by NIOSH and cosponsored by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). A symposium was sponsored by NIOSH 10 years ago which had a similar goal. The focus of that symposium was to identify chemicals and chemical compounds which cause teratogenesis or mutagenesis. At that time there was a lack of methods for identifying and evaluating other adverse reproductive effects. Progress over the last 10 years formed the basis of this symposium. Epidemiologic and animal toxicity studies have identified numerous reproductive hazards. Topics of the symposium included advances in male reproductive toxicology, the methodology for assessing adverse effects on male reproduction, developments in methodology for assessing adverse effects on female fertility, and the need of Federal regulatory agencies for data essential for the regulation of reproductive toxicants.
