Another report at the same conference provided support for Vostal:s thesis. This was the finding by Kawabata et al. (1986) that intratracheal instillation of either carbon black or diesel soot caused a high incidence of lung cancer in rats. As I recall, the findings were at least partially discounted at the time the data were presented because of concern for the large quantities of particles delivered via a nonphysiological mode of administration, intratracheal instillation. Vostal noted that a threshold relationship between exposure and rat lung tumor response was observed for all of these dusts (Fig.
