Summary of the workshop on exposure to environmental agents, their metabolism, and mechanisms of toxicity, research needs.
NIOSH 1981 Aug; :1-138
The report is the product of a workshop sponsored by the task force on environmental cancer and heart and lung disease. It contains 72 recommendations for basic and applied environmental research, which were developed through a consensus of scientific experts from government, industry and academia. Research needs are identified in the following areas: accessing federal data systems for epidemiological research; improving analytical techniques for monitoring and assessing human exposures; understanding mechanisms of activation and detoxification of environmental pollutants in animals and humans; examining the interactions of environmental pollutants with macromolecules, such as DNA; and understanding the repair and replicative processes, and gene expression as possible common toxicological events in cancer and heart and lung disease.
