Recent studies have shown that insoluble, biochemically inert particles, small enough to deposit in the deep lung, are capable of inducing carcinogenic as well as pathological effects. On March 10-11, 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Office of Health and Environmental Assessment sponsored a workshop in McLean, Virginia. Fourteen expert panelists discussed the current state of the art regarding pathological effects of inhalable particulate matter. They also developed a list of research recommendations aimed at improving risk assessment in this area. A number of observers also were present to witness and join in the discussion. The report summarizes the proceedings of the workshop.
