Abstract : This series of manuscripts from the 17th Conference on Toxicology addresses critical research and development issues for quantitatively assessing the 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 quantitative methods in toxicology especially as applied to military systems or military operations. These manuscripts present state-of-the-art methodologies that will improve our ability to develop objective indices of toxicity keeping in mind that the ultimate purpose is to predict expected human toxicity.
