This comprehensive listing contained abstracts and indexing terms for 152 articles published as a result of the medical, technical and scientific research conducted by workers at the NIOSH Appalachian Laboratory for Occupational Respiratory Diseases. These articles appeared from the beginning of the laboratory until December of 1974 and deal mainly with the aspects of health hazards as they exist in the mining and milling industries. The primary point of much research during this time phase as encouraged by the Federal government was related to the incidence of pneumoconiosis. Articles were also related to mining safety. Some of the reports included in this compendium arose from research conducted at other NIOSH laboratories in Cincinnati, Ohio and in Salt Lake City, Utah. Reports were included on the following topics: clinical medicine, demography, analytical and physical chemistry, biochemistry, electron microscopy, pathology, physiology, infectious disease research, immunology, statistics, epidemiology, and safety. As the first round of examinations of coal miners under the National Study of Coal Workers' Pneumoconiosis guidelines was completed during this time frame, articles were included concerning the findings of these examinations.
