Sufficient Evidence of an Association

  • No findings

Limited/Suggestive Evidence of an Association:

  • Organophosphorous insecticide exposure with OP poisoning and long-term neurobehavioral effects (that is, abnormal results on neurobehavioral test batteries and symptom findings)

  • Solvents and neurobehavioral effects (that is, abnormal results on neurobehavioral test batteries and symptom findings)
