ATSDR Toxic Substances Update


The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recently updated the list of Toxic Substances held by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. The ATSDR toxicological profile succinctly characterizes the toxicologic and adverse health effects information for the hazardous substance described here. Each peer-reviewed profile identifies and reviews the key literature that describes a hazardous substance's toxicologic properties. Other pertinent literature is also presented, but is described in less detail than the key studies.

The update relates to the Toxicological Profile for Glutaraldehyde. The update is open for public comment.
