Review of Report on Long-Term Health Effects on Human Test Subjects from Army Testing of Biological and Chemical Agents, Drugs, Medications, and Substances

Statement of Task

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. Consideration will also be given to whether additional literature is available that would suggest other potential long-term health effects.
