Abstract
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.
