Resumen Proceedings of a workshop held in Luxembourg from 6 to 9 July 1987 to evaluate the current methods which use indicators in human biological materials for assessing exposure to and/or biological effects of genotoxic chemcials. The conclusion of the workshop was that despite the existence of a number of tests available to assess exposure and/or effects of genotoxic chemicals, none of these tests can assess the health risks at an individual level. Experience gained from routine biological monitoring in this area, is therefore limited. The importance of ethical considerations with regard to biological testing was stressed.
