Abstract
Studies involving the controlled exposure of humans to the vapor of trichloroethylene are described, including: repeat exposures for up to 5 consecutive days at concentrations of trichloroethylene (79016) bracketing the threshold limit value; and psychophysiological functions during exposure at the threshold limit value. Measurements of trichloroethylene in the breath and trichloroethylene metabolites in the urine were carried out after exposure.
