Health effects literature primarily related to inhalation exposure to formaldehyde was collected, evaluated, tabulated, and summarized. Approximately 425 documents were collected from computerized and manual literature searches covering the period 1905-1981. Pharmacologists and an M.D. epidemiologist rated the documents according to their applicability to the study and their methodology. The approximately 110 documents considered useful for deriving a range of concern for human exposure to formaldehyde from automotive emissions were tabulated. The 145 pages of tables detail the results of acute, repeated dose, and chronic testing of mice, hamsters, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats, pigs, dogs, monkeys, and humans as well as human occupational and epidemiological studies. Most of the documents evaluated are described in an annotated bibliography.
