Experimental studies should be conducted to determine the nature of and the LOAEL for neurologic and neurobehavioral effects of exposure to DU.
On the basis of available reproductive-toxicity and developmental-toxicity data, samples of blood, urine, or semen of DU-exposed military personnel should be collected for the measurement of uranium content and signs of abnormal reproductive function in men and women. In addition, the reporting of spontaneous abortions and congenital anomalies should be continued.
The committee does not recommend additional studies of the hematologic or hepatotoxic effects of DU.
