Papers read before the Eighth Annual American Medical Association Air Pollution Medical Research Conference, Los Angeles, California, March 2-4, 1966, are presented in this document. Topics deal with basic approaches to the study of the effects of inhaled irritants on the lung; environmental parameters in relation to host responses; biological determinants of lung responses to air pollutants; attempts to identify the effect of social, environmental, and biologic factors, and the extent of their interaction by clinical, epidemiologic and laboratory means; biostatistical considerations necessary to gauge the health effects of air pollution; and clinical implications of basic research in this field. Graphs, charts, and/or tables illustrate most of the 30 papers and many include the discussion following the presentation. (BL)
