Abstract

The report, Summary Report of the Peer Review Workshop on the Neurotoxicity of Tetrachloroethylene (Perchloroethylene) Discussion, summarizes the discussions at a February 25, 2004, workshop that brought together recognized scientific experts to engage in a public discussion on the neurological effects of inhalation of tetrachloroethylene, as well as a review of studies that focus on these effects. The expert consultants based their discussion on an October 2003 External Review Draft EPA paper entitled, Neurotoxicity of Tetrachloroethylene (Perchloroethylene) Discussion Paper (EPA/600/P-03/005A), which was provided both to the expert consultants and to the public prior to the workshop meeting. At the workshop, the external experts provided EPA with their individual opinions on science issues related to the neurotoxicological effects of tetrachloroethylene. Expert information gathered at the workshop will help in EPA's development of its draft assessment of tetrachloroethylene health effects.
