        Agent Orange. AO, named for the color of its storage containers, was used extensively as a defoliant in the Vietnam War. It was composed of a mixture of 2,4-dichloro-phenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and 2,4,5-trichloro-phenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T). The mixture was contaminated with 2,3,7,8- tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, a by-product and known carcinogen. The CDC, with the assent of the AOWG and the OTA as well as the Science Panel of the Domestic Policy Council, cancelled the planned Agent Orange Study (VA, ). 26 By the time the CDC Agent Orange study was cancelled, CDC and AFHS investigators had already begun collaboration on a serum TCDD assay pilot study of Ranch Hand sera (RHAC, ).

        The subcommittee held an oversight hearing to review the Centers for Disease Control’s study on the defoliant Agent Novem Presidential Radio Address. Centers for Disease Control for its mishandling of re-search data, and for its interpretation of the data the CpC researchers did gather. Sommer pointed out that the CDC study of Agent Orange exposure was so limited by the restrictions upon just what veterans would be included that an accurate picture of these veterans was not developed.

      1 Introduction. The Agent Orange Act of —Public Law (PL) , enacted February 6, , and codified as Section of Title 38 of the United States Code—directed the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to ask the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to conduct an independent comprehensive review and evaluation of scientific and medical information regarding the health effects of exposure. The Stellmans also discuss extensively their evaluation of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Agent Orange Validation Study, the use of serum TCDD (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzop-dioxin) as an exposure marker, selection process for the validation study, military records data, and data analysis. The Stellmans note that the CDC study has served.

The CDC study (which lists no authors) that was published did not study any specific mechanism by which Agent Orange might have caused health issues in veterans. Instead, it studied dioxin levels in Vietnam.The main chemical mixture sprayed was Agent Orange, a mixture of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T.

At the time of the spraying, 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), the most toxic form of dioxin, was an unintended contaminant generated during the production of 2,4,5-T and so was present in Agent Orange and some other formulations sprayed in Vietnam.
