  • Abstract.Objectives: Understanding the potential for volatile chemicals to elicit chemosensory irritation in the upper respiratory tract is critical to setting occupational exposure limits that are protective of comfort and well-being for the majority of workers. However, the determination of irritant potency for any volatile chemical has been limited by the lack of reliable and non-invasive assays for studying sensory irritation in humans and a failure to appreciate the many non-sensory… CONTINUE READING
