Proceedings of a Workshop on Methodology for Assessing Reproductive Hazards in the Workplace April 19-22, 1978.
NIOSH 1980 Oct:1-423
The proceedings of a workshop on methodological approaches to assessing reproductive hazards of occupational exposures are presented. The workshop was held on April 19 to 22, 1978, at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Research topics included case studies involving chemicals with adverse reproductive effects; in-vitro and in-vivo test procedures for detecting mutagens and teratogens; cytogenic and sperm analysis for monitoring exposed workers; and epidemiological techniques for determining teratogens. Recommendations relating to epidemiological studies, whole animal experiments, nonhuman test systems, advanced warning systems, and workers education are included. Names and addresses of study participants were provided.
