Abstract : This series of manuscripts from the 16th Conference on Toxicology addresses critical research and development issues for improving the scientific capability to predict potential health risks associated with various occupational and environmental exposures. To meet the needs of the Department of Defense, these contributions focus on the current knowledge of the health effects of a variety of chemical substances which are either used in military systems or generated during military operations. These manuscripts present state-of-the-art methodologies that are being used to predict subtle biochemical, physiochemical, and pathological effects with both the intact organism and specific in vitro models. Keywords: Acetone, Aerosol generator, Antioxidants, Caffeine, Carbon dioxide, Carcinogenicity, Combustion toxicology, Composite materials, Dioxin, Fire, Gas generation, Gasoline, Groundwater, Hydrogen cyanide, Inhalation, Irritant gases, Lungs, Macrophages, Marihuana, Respiratory physiology, Risk analysis, Skin irritation, Smoke, Teratogenesis, Tetrachloroethylene, Thermal degradation, Tobacco, Tracheal epithelium, Carbon monoxide, Cardiopulmonary.
