||At this workshop sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Society for Occupational and Environmental Health (held at Washington, USA, 19-22 Apr. 1978) 29 papers were presented on topics including: case studies of agents associated with adverse effects on reproduction (alcohol, lead, vinyl chloride, anaesthetic gases, chloroprene, dibromochloropropane); standard in vitro and in vivo tests for the identification of mutagens and teratogens; short term methods for human surveillance of mutagens, including cytogenic studies and sperm assays; epidemiologic methods for detecting teratogens. Recommendations for future research were also made.
