The purpose of this report is to reevaluate the carcinogenic potency of diesel particulate matter (PM) in light of the new data from these animal studies, as well as to reexamine the evidence available from human epidemiological studies. Additional issues that are addressed include the interrelationship between carcinogenic effects and rates of deposition and clearance of the exhaust particles from the lungs, and the significance of potentially carcinogenic organic compounds absorbed to the exhaust particles and their subsequent desorption and bioavailability. Also included is an overview of the potential noncarcinogenic health effects associated with exposure to diesel exhaust.
