📙 Review of the Department of Defense Research Program on Low-Level Exposures to Chemical Warfare Agents by Subcommittee on Toxicologic Assessment of Low-Level Exposures to Chemical Warfare Agents, Committee on Toxicology, National Research Council — epub download


Research related to chemical warfare agents (CWA's) has historically focused on life threatening battlefield effects caused by high level exposures to the agents, not effects associated with exposures to low concentrations of them. In this report, low level concentrations refers to exposures that may not have any immediate observed health effects, but may produce delayed health effects months or years later. Recently, there has been increased concern about the potential health effects of exposures to CWA's at low concentrations. This report reviews the Department of Defenses (DOD) Research Plan for obtaining toxicologic and other relevant data to assess risk to military personnel.The CWA's of concern include the following nerve and vesicant agents: tabun, sarin, soman, cyclosarin, VX, and sulfur mustard. The report discusses the health effects of exposure to low levels of these agents and provides guidance to DOD on appropriate risk assessment methods for assessing toxicologic risk to military personnel from low-level exposures to CWA's. The report concludes that DOD's Research Plan is well planned and many of the proposed research tasks are likely to provide valuable information to DOD in protecting military personnel.
