Abstract:

The JP-8 Final Risk Assessment is a collection of several studies assessing the health and performance effects from acute exposure to Jet Propellant type 8 JP-8 jet fuel. Exposed subjects were active duty Air Force personnel who worked with or were routinely exposed to JP-8 in the performance of their duties. Non-exposed subjects were active duty Air Force personnel who did not have routine contact with JP-8 during the performance of their duties. Assessments included JP-8 exposure in the immediate personal environment, JP-8 body burden, neurologic effects, hormonal effects, immunological effects, liverrenal function, cytotoxicgenotoxic effects, glutathione-S-transferase activity, and self-reported health status.
