This annually updated CD-ROM translates over 50,000 pages of data into a comprehensive, current, easy-to-use compendium of the mitigation of health effects, data gaps, and all available health data. ATSDR's Toxicological Profiles on CD-ROM, Version 5:1 2003 contains 170 final profiles, covering the toxicological effects of hazardous substances, chemicals, and compounds. Extensively peer-reviewed, this work is fully indexed and easily searchable. A complete database of toxicological and epidemiological information, this CD-ROM is the only one organized by route of exposure - inhalation, oral, and dermal. Each profile includes an examination, summary, and interpretation of available toxicological and epidemiological data evaluations on the hazardous substance.
