Health effects literature primarily related to inhalation exposures to ammonia was collected, evaluated, tabulated, and summarized. Approximately 200 documents were collected from computerized and manual literature searches covering the period 1886-1981. Pharmacologists and an M.D. epidemiologist rated the documents according to their applicability to the study and their methodology. The approximately 50 documents considered useful for deriving a range of concern for human exposure to ammonia from automotive emissions were tabulated. The 50 pages of tables detail the results of acute, repeated dose, and chronic testing of bats, mice, rats, guinea pigs, chickens, rabbits, cats, monkeys, dogs, turkeys, swine, and humans as well as human occupational and accidental studies. Most of the documents evaluated are described in an annotated bibliography.
