Over the past three or four decades, advances have been made in understanding the actions, exposure-response characteristics, and mechanisms of action of many common air pollutants. A multidisciplinary approach using epidemiology, animal toxicology, and controlled human exposure studies has contributed to the data base. The review will emphasize studies of humans but will also draw on findings from the other disciplines.
