The report presents a summary of various studies on the effect of exposure to nitrogen dioxide, chromium trioxide, and nickel oxide on the resistance of experimental animals to bacterial and viral infection. The following studies were conducted in this research program: (1) Long-term exposure of squirrel monkeys to NO2; (2) Interaction of nickel oxide and respiratory infection in hamsters; (3) Interaction of chromium trioxide and respiratory infection in mice; and (4) Immune response in mice during long-term NO2 exposure. This last study has not been completed, however, all data available to date are summarized in the report.
