Health effects literature primarily related to inhalation exposure to methanol was collected, evaluated, tabulated, and summarized. Approximately 160 documents were collected from computerized and manual literature searches covering the period 1901-1980. Pharmacologists and an M.D. epidemiologist rated the documents according to their applicability to the study and their methodology. The approximately 25 documents considered useful for deriving a range of concern for human exposure to methanol from automotive emissions were tabulated. The pages of tables detail the results of acute, repeated dose, and chronic testing of mice, rats, rabbits, dogs, monkeys and humans as well as human occupational studies. A brief summary of oral and skin absorption toxicity is included. Most of the documents evaluated are described in an annotated bibliography.
