Health effects literature primarily related to inhalation exposures to acrolein was collected, evaluated, tabulated, and summarized. Approximately 125 documents were collected from computerized and manual literature searches covering the period 1911-1981. Pharmacologists and an M.D. epidemiologist rated the documents according to their applicabality to the study and their methodology. The approximately 45 documents considered useful for deriving a range of concern for human exposure to acrolein from automotive emissions were tabulated. The pages of tables detail the results of acute, repeated dose, and chronic testing of mice, hamsters, rats, guinea pigs, chickens, rabbits, cats, monkeys, dogs, and humans as well as human occupational and accidental studies. Most of the documents evaluated are described in an annotated bibliography.
