An international consensus to remove chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) compounds from production and U.S. national policy to implement the resulting protocols has motivated the U.S. Air Force to embark on a program to find a suitable replacement for halon 1211, currently used to extinguish flight line fires. This research addressed the feasibility of conducting a combustion toxicology (CT) program to assess the toxic products of the combustion interaction of JP-8 and the group 1 or so-called "near term" candidate replacement agents for halon 1211: HCFCs -123, -124, and 124b. A laboratory scale experiment benchmarked on large scale testing of a 150 ft2 pool fire was developed on the basis of Froude scaling of the full scale and investigation into the use of animal behavior methods as an indicator of human incapacitation was conducted. The result is a new method which may potentially be utilized for future toxicity studies of the combustion interaction of current and future U.S. Air Force fuels with various fire extinguishants.

Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology, Second Edition, is a comprehensive and authoritative resource that provides the latest literature on this complex subject with a primary focus on three core components—parent, placenta, and fetus—and the continuous changes that occur in each. Enriched with relevant references describing every aspect of reproductive toxicology, this revised and updated resource addresses the totality of the subject, discussing a broad range of topics, including nanoparticles and radiation, gases and solvents, smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, and metals, amongst others. With a special focus on placental toxicity, this book is the only available reference to connect the three key risk stages, also including discussions on reproductive and developmental toxicity in domestic animals, fish, and wildlife. Completely revised and updated to include the most recent developments in the field, the book is an essential resource for advanced students and researchers in toxicology, as well as biologists, pharmacologists, and teratologists from academia, industry, and regulatory agencies. Provides a complete, up-to-date, integrated source of information on the key risk stages during reproduction and development Includes new chapters covering significant developments, such as dose-response assessment for developmental toxicity, juvenile toxicity, and neural tube defects, as well as emerging science, such as stem cell application, toxicoproteomics, metabolomics, endocrine disruption, surveillance and regulatory considerations, and risk assessment Offers diverse and unique in vitro and in vivo toxicity models for reproductive and developmental toxicity testing in a user-friendly format that assists in comparative analysis

An explosive increase in the knowledge of the effects of chemical and physical agents on biological systems has led to an increased understanding of normal cellular functions and the consequences of their perturbations. The 14-volume Second Edition of Comprehensive Toxicology has been revised and updated to reflect new advances in toxicology research, including content by some of the leading researchers in the field. It remains the premier resource for toxicologists in academia, medicine, and corporations. Comprehensive Toxicology Second Edition provides a unique organ-systems structure that allows the user to explore the toxic effects of various substances on each human system, aiding in providing diagnoses and proving essential in situations where the toxic substance is unknown but its effects on a system are obvious. Comprehensive Toxicology Second Edition is the most complete and valuable toxicology work available to researchers today. Contents updated and revised to reflect developments in toxicology research Organized with a unique organ-system approach Features full color throughout Available electronically on sciencedirect.com, as well as in a limited-edition print version

There is increasing evidence that repeated human occupational exposure to low concentrations of fuels can result in significant changes in neurobehavioral capacity. Recent evidence indicates that repeated exposure of rodents to jet fuel vapor/aerosol can induce significant changes in physiological function. To evaluate the neurobehavioral consequences of repeated fuel vapor exposures, groups of 32 male Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed for 6 hr/day, 5 days/week, for 6 consecutive weeks, to JP-8 (1 mg/L) jet fuel, JP-5 jet fuel, or diesel fuel vapor in whole body inhalation chambers. Three groups of 16 control rats each were similarly exposed to room air. Following whole body exposures, rats were rested for 65 days then were evaluated for neurobehavioral changes on%a battery often performance tests selected from the Neurobehavioral Toxicity Assessment Battery (NTAB). Following sacrifice, rats were assayed for changes in brain or serum neurotransmitter levels, and for functional or anatomical changes in the lungs, liver and testes. Results of this investigation are compared to data reported previously for fuel industry workers exposed to jet fuel vapors for up to 32 years.

The US. Department of Defense (DOD) has, for many years, faced the logistical problem of using a variety of fuels for its aircraft, ground vehicles, and other equipment, such as cooking stoves and tent heaters. In the 1980s,DOD decided to initiate a 20 year (yr) fuel conversion process, in which most fuel requiring equipment would be converted to exclusive use of jet propulsion fuel-8 (JP-8). With DOD and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) forces using an estimated 5 billion gallons of JP-8 each year, there is wide spread exposure of DOD and NATO military personnel to JP-8. In 1996, a previous subcommittee of the National Research Council's Committee on Toxicology (COT)1 judged that the Navy's interim 8-hr time weighted-average permissible exposure level (PEL) of 350 mg/m3 for JP-4,JP- 5, and JP-8 was adequate to protect the health of Navy personnel occupationally exposed to vapors from those fuels, based on the data available at that time; however, it identified a number of data gaps and recommended that the PEL for the three jet-fuel vapors be considered interim until further research had been completed.

The United States Navy has been concerned for some time with protecting its military and civilian personnel from reproductive and developmental hazards in the workplace. As part of its efforts to reduce or eliminate exposure of Naval personnel and their families to reproductive and developmental toxicants, the Navy requested that the National Research Council (NRC) recommend an approach that can be used to evaluate chemicals and physical agents for their potential to cause reproductive and developmental toxicity. The NRC assigned this project to the Committee on Toxicology, which convened the Subcommittee on Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology, to prepare this report. In this report, the subcommittee recommends an approach for evaluating agents for potential reproductive and developmental toxicity and demonstrates how that approach can be used by the Navy. This report has been reviewed in draft form by individuals chosen for their diverse perspectives and technical expertise, in accordance with procedures approved by the NRC's Report Review Committee. The purpose of this independent review is to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the institution in making its published report as sound as possible and to ensure that the report meets institutional standards for objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the study charge. The review comments and draft manuscript remain confidential to protect the integrity of the deliberative process. We wish to thank the following individuals for their review of this report: James Chen (National Center for Toxicological Research), George Daston (Procter and Gamble Company), Jerry Heindel (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences), Grace Lemasters (University of Cincinnati), and John Young (National Center for Toxicological Research).
