Animal Inhalation Studies on the Effects of Exhaust Emissions From Internal Combustion Engines 845082
The effects of the total exhaust emission with its hundreds of
different compounds and potential coergisms resulting therefrom,
with special reference to a potential carcinogenic or
cocarcinogenic effect on the respiratory tract, can only be
established using experiments which consider the exhaust with all
its gaseous components and particulate matter as a whole.
Long-term diesel and gasoline engine exhaust inhalatin studies
with rats, hamsters and mice which have already been accomplished
or are still running at the Fraunhofer-Institut für Toxikologie
und Aerosolforschung, aim to investigate the chronic-toxic effects,
as well as the potential carcinogencity or cocarcinogenicity of
The combined effects of the exhaust gases with substances which
have a known carcinogenic effect on the respiratory tract are
integrated into a comprehensive experimental programme as is the
investigation of diesel engine exhaust gases from which particulate
matter has been removed using a centrifugal separator.
A description of the complex experimental plant necessary for
these experiments will be given and already existing test results
will be explained and discussed.
