Various health effect parameters were compared to determine which tests were the most sensitive indicators of toxic effects of exposure to metallic sulfate aerosols. Inhalation studies were conducted involving either single 3-hr exposure to various concentrations of cupric sulfate (o.43-2.64 mg/cubic meters SO4), and aluminum ammonium sulfate (1.47-3.81 mg/cubic meters SO4) or multiple (five and ten) daily 3-hr exposures to cupric sulfate (0.1 mg/cubic meters SO4). Cupric sulfate was the most toxic of the three sulfates, but the differences between the toxicity of the aluminum sulfate and aluminum ammonium sulfate were less clear.
