Title: Decrements in olfactory sensitivity due to ozone exposure

Abstract

Approximate olfactory thresholds were determined in an exploratory study in which subjects were exposed to ozone (O/sub 3/). The odorants were butyl alcohol (BA) and acetic acid (AA). Preliminary data suggest temporary increases in thresholds due to O/sub 3/ exposure, diminution of O/sub 3/ effects with repeated exposures, and greater and more reliable effects for BA than AA.
