Abstract : This report is the 34th Annual Report of the Toxic Hazards Research (THR) program and presents scientific activities of the ManTech Geo-Centers Joint Venture contract on behalf of the toxicology divisions/detachments of the Air Force, Army, and Navy for the period of 1 October l996 through 30 September 1997. The THR program conducts descriptive, mechanistic, and predictive toxicology studies and toxicological risk assessments to provide data to predict health hazards and to assess the health risks associated with human exposure to chemicals and chemical materials of interest to the military. The major goal 0 the THR's research efforts is to contribute to safe military operations, including safe occupational and environmental conditions. An additional goal of THR is to advance the state-of-the-art in toxicology research and risk assessment techniques. The scientific sections of the report are divided into the following six projects: trichloroethylene carcinogenicity; halon replacement toxicity; explosives, propellants, fuels, and lubricants; predictive toxicology; advanced composite materials; and methods development. Presented, also, are sections on conference support and research support (e.g., pathology, quality assurance, computer support) activities, as well as a products list of publications, presentations, and awards.
