Much research has been performed to evaluate the health effects associated with exposure to Diesel emissions. The research performed falls into five general areas: mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, non-genetic effects, characterization and epidemiology. EPA is conducting a massive research program that includes studies in each area. Since epidemiological data for Diesel emissions are limited, a major portion of EPA's research effort involves determining the relative mutagenic and carcinogenic potency of Diesel emissions compared to potencies of comparative emissions for which epidemiological data are available. EPA will use the results of these studies with epidemiological data for the comparative sources to assess the human health risk associated with exposure to Diesel emissions.
