> Welcome to the prototype IRIS home page. IRIS is brought to you by the
> U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and its Office of Research and
> Development, National Center for Environmental Assessment. EPA is
> testing this Web presentation of IRIS, a data base of human health
> effects that may result from exposure to various substances found in
> the environment. For more information about IRIS, read this
> Introduction. The scientific content of this web prototype is
> consistent with the IRIS system in use at EPA and with the version of
> IRIS accessible through the National Library of Medicine's TOXNET
> system.
> Over the coming year, EPA will be testing other format improvements
> and adding functionality to the IRIS home page. We are also working to
> update and improve the scientific content of IRIS. We invite your
> comments on the IRIS web prototype. At this stage, we are particularly
> interested in problems with access, reading, or navigation.
> Suggestions are also welcome for any improvements to IRIS. Send
> comments about the web prototype to the IRIS webmaster by email to
> Steve Young, US EPA; young.steve at epamail.epa.gov.
> For technical questions about the scientific information content in
> IRIS, please call the U.S. EPA Risk Information Hotline at telephone

> substance names, or the list can be searched with your web browser,
> such as Netscape or Internet Explorer, by typing the name or Chemical
> Abstracts Service (CAS) Registry Number at the "Find" command. At any
> place in an IRIS substance file, use the "Back" command to return to
> the substance list.
