The objective of this program was to evaluate the possible respiratory carcinogenic effects of diesel fuel emission particles and organic extracts of these particles in suitable animal models. Because of our previous experience in the use of the Schreiber method for localized tumor induction and the rapid response time observed in this model with certain known direct acting carcinogens it was planned to initiate our studies with this model. Subsequently studies were to be initiated using the Saffiotti technique for intratracheal instillation of life-time effects. This report also describes certain studies which were initiated but not completed due to decisions concerning program relevance and to choices made concerning the expenditure of available program funds.
