Fairchild EJ, Lewis RL, Tatken RL, eds. Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No. 78-104A, 1977 Sep; :1-930
This edition of the Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances was published in two volumes to accommodate the increased number of substances and toxicity citations, and to provide indexes to those subfiles containing substances of special interest. Rather than split the text arbitrarily, we have included the indexes in Volume I and all toxicity data in Volume II. Volume I, which contains the Introduction and Appendixes, is divided into five chapters. The first chapter contains a complete alphabetical listing of all substance prime names and synonyms in the Registry. The remaining four chapters are indexes to the subfiles of those compounds with toxicity citations in the literature indicating carcinogenic and neoplastigenic, teratogenic, mutagenic, or human toxic effects. Each name entry in Volume I is cross-referenced by RTECS accession number to Volume II, which contains the complete toxicity data record associated with each compound, along with the list of bibliographic references. The enclosed bookmark contains a list of abbreviations and an expanded view of a typical Registry data record to facilitate interpretation of the data contained in Volume II.
