Abstract : This reports presents a review of the activities of the Toxic Hazards Research Hunt (THRU) for the period Ol October 1993 through 30 September 1994. The THRU conducts descriptive, mechanistic, and predictive toxicology research and toxicological risk assessments to provide data to predict health hazards and to assess health risks associated with human exposure to chemicals and materials associated with military systems and operational environments. This report includes summaries of ongoing or completed research activities for major project efforts tasked by the Tri-Service Toxicology; highlights of the research support elements and conference activities of the THRU; and appendices that describe the ThRU organization and its publications and presentations. The majority of the report describes the progress attained in toxicological investigations on a wide variety of chemicals and materials to include trichloroethylene; Italon 1301 or 1211 replacement candidates iodotrifluoromethane, HFC- 227ea, HFC-125, HCFC-123, and FC-218; and nitrate explosive and propellant candidates 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene, liquid propellant XM465, ammonium dinitramide, and 1,3,3-trinitoazetidine. The ThRU also summarized the research findings of select jet fuel studies conducted in the 1970s and 1980s, conducted research on lactational transfer modeling, and evaluated statistical methods for assessing military populations as a subgroup of the public at-large.
