Abstract

It was the aim of the research work described and discussed here to improve the scientific prerequisites for the evaluation of dangers to human health from emission of diesel exhaust gases. The question actually to be clarified was the relationship between the particles contained in diesel exhaust gases and the effects of their inhalation by humans. The experiments were carried out with uniform baseline material prepared according to an especially developed procedure (diesel exhaust particulate, complete extract of diesel exhaust particulate and fractions isolated from this), commercial titanium dioxide particles and technical grade particulate of unvarying composition and quality. All these materials were examined for their effects in rats and mice as well as in cultured cells. In conjunction with other immission data needing to be confirmed by further measurements the results of this research project will provide a basis for more comprehensive assessments of dangers to health not only due to diesel particulate emissions but also through soot particles and hardly soluble fine dusts from other sources of emission. All of the eight contributions to this volume are available individually. (orig./MG).

[Deutsch] Ziel der hier vorgestellte Forschungsarbeiten war es, die wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen fuer die Abschaetzung der von Dieselmotorabgasemissionen ausgehenden Risiken fuer die Gesundheit des Menschen zu verbessern. Konkret ging es um die Erforschung von Ursache-Wirkungsbeziehungen speziell zwischen den im Dieselmotorabgas enthaltenen Dieselrusspartikeln und den Folgen, die durch das Einatmen dieser Partikel entstehen. Fuer die Forschungsarbeiten wurden, nach einem eigens hierfuer entwickelten Verfahren, einheitliche Ausgangsstoffe (Dieselrusspartikel aus Dieselmotorabgas, Dieselrussgesamtextrakt und daraus isolierte Fraktionen) sowie kaeuflich erworbene Titandioxidpartikel und technisch hergestellte Russpartikel von qualitativ gleichbleibender Qualitaet bereitgestellt. Mit diesen Komponenten wurden Wirkungsuntersuchungen an Ratten und Maeusen beziehungsweise an Zellkulturen durchgefuehrt. Die Ergebnisse aus diesem Forschungsprojekt, zusammen mit den noch durch weitere Messungen abzusichernden Imissionsdaten sind die Grundlage fuer eine weiterfuehrende Abschaetzung des gesundheitlichen Risikos nicht nur durch Dieselrussemissionen, sondern auch durch Russ und schwer loesliche Feinstaeube aus anderen Emissionsquellen. Von den in der Voroeffentlichung enthaltenen 8 Einzelbeitraegen wurden jeweils gesondert Einzelaufnahmen angefertigt. (orig./MG).}
