||Conclusions of this evaluation: (1) there is no convincing evidence that vanadium is an essential element for man; (2) there is a dose-response relationship between the concentration of vanadium in air and its irritant effects (rhinitis, bronchitis, eczematous dermatitis); (3) vanadium may be embryotoxic and gonadotoxic.
