Description of key information

Human data are also available following several years of exposure and the reported cases of pulmonary effects, attributed to exposure to zirconium, are rare.

Additional information

Human data are also available following several years of exposure (K3 or K4 worker cases reported, with very few workers and no information about dose exposures or co-exposition to other chemicals). Despite suspicion that inhalation of zirconium should be capable of causing human pulmonary disease, the reported cases of pulmonary effects, attributed to exposure to zirconium, are rare. These epidemiological data, in addition to the absence of effect observed in the repeated dose toxicity, can be considered as supporting studies
