- The primary objective of this program announcement is to encourage research about how the upper respiratory tract and lungs respond to acute exposure to highly toxic chemicals and subsequent inhalation, so that preventive strategies can be improved, antidotes devised to lessen initial irritation of mucosal surfaces, mucosal absorption minimized, and acute lung injury causing pulmonary edema counteracted. This program encourages innovative, multidisciplinary basic and clinical research of the respiratory tract with the goal of accelerating progress in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of toxic inhalation from chemical exposures.
