Project Title:

Review of Report on Long-Term Health Effects on Human Test Subjects from Army Testing of Biological and Chemical Agents, Drugs, Medications, and Substances
PIN: DELS-BEST-16-03        

Major Unit:

Division on Earth and Life Studies
Health and Medicine Division

Sub Unit: Board on Environmental Studies & Toxicology
Board on the Health of Select Populations

RSO: Martel, Susan

Subject/Focus Area: Environment and Environmental Studies; Health and Medicine

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee will evaluate the report Assessment of Potential Long-term Health Effects on Army Human Test Subjects of Relevant Biological and Chemical Agents, Drugs, Medications and Substances: Literature Review and Analysis. The committee will determine whether the report appropriately identifies potential long-term health effects from exposure during testing and uses an adequate weight-of-evidence approach to characterize the strength of association between agents and their potential effects. The general approach developed by the Army to evaluate agent- and outcome-specific associations will also be reviewed. The committee will prepare two reports: an interim letter report that documents the committee's overarching findings and their supporting evidence, followed by a final report at the end of the project that provides additional technical detail.

Sponsor: U.S. Army

Project Duration: 12 months
