Abstract
Methods used for the determination of exposure levels to particulate air pollution and the health effects of such exposures were reviewed. Exposure assessment techniques that have been used in epidemiological studies of occupational and environmental lung disease such as identification of exposed and nonexposed populations, determination of exposure duration, examination of occupational histories, examination of subjective exposure indicators, and examination of biological markers of exposure were described. The usefulness of several techniques designed to measure the effects of exposure such as questionnaires, physical examinations, radiography, lung function testing, tests of airway responsiveness, and examination of biomarkers of exposure or susceptibility was examined.
