For the past three years, the Office of Toxic Substances' Monitoring Division has been involved in investigating the establishment of a data base of chemicals identified in human tissues and body fluids. A preliminary computer search in 1976 revealed that adequate descriptors do not exist for retrieving body-burden information from existing computer files and indicated a manual approach would be necessary. This report contains the results of a pilot manual literature survey accomplished by Tracor-Jitco for the period January 1977 through September 1978. Fifty-one relevant articles containing information on fifty-three different substances were identified in forty-two selected journals. Data extracted from those articles is organized alphabetically by substance in the text of this report.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 73-76).
