Abstract : The Environmental Sciences Branch of the Armstrong Laboratory Occupational Medicine Division (AL/OEMH) was requested to provide hepatotoxicity data on a list of chemicals commonly used at Air Force bases. Information has been obtained from various databases, including the NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards, EPA's Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), and the Hazardous Substances Database (HSDB). This report includes information on target tissues, carcinogenicity classification, occupational exposure limits, appropriate medical surveillance, and populations at special risk as well as potential for hepatotoxicity.
