An ad hoc committee will evaluate the report Assessment of Potential Long-Term Health Effects on Army Human Test Subjects of Relevant Biological and Chemical Agents, Drugs, Medications and Substances: Literature Review and Analysis. The committee will determine whether the report appropriately identifies potential long-term health effects from exposure during testing and uses an adequate weight-of-evidence approach to characterize the strength of association between agents and their potential effects. The general approach developed by the Army to evaluate agent- and outcome-specific associations will also be reviewed. The committee will prepare two reports: an interim letter report that documents the committee’s overarching findings and their supporting evidence, followed by a final report at the end of the project that provides additional technical details.
