Abstract
A systematic study of the carcinogenic properties of products of thermal processing and incomplete combustion of Estonian (kukersit) oil shales was made at the Institute of Experimental and Clinical Medicine. Moreover, work has been done in this field at the Tartusk State University and at certain other scientific institutions of the Soviet Union. A project was initiated to obtain more complete and detailed data on the carcinogenic properties of the basic primary oil shale products, commercial products, and shale soot. A considerable amount of material was accumulated for the elapsed period and was published in various publications. A short survey of these studies is presented in the report.
