National Toxicology Program Peer-Review Meeting on Effects of Sarin Exposure

February 4, 2019

Sarin Nerve Agent Effects Research

The National Toxicology Program will host a public webinar on 4 Feb 2019 to discuss the draft findings of a systematic review to evaluate the evidence for long-term neurological effects in humans and animals following acute exposure to sarin.

Sarin is a highly toxic organophosphorus nerve agent that was developed for chemical warfare during World War II and continues to be used as a weapon. Long-term neurological effects of acute exposure to sarin are not well characterized.

Registration is required for attendance and to present oral comments. The webcast is open to the public.
