... Given the study's focus on long-term human health effects of insecticides and solvents, MEDEINE and EMBASE were particularly useful because of their extensive coverage of US and international scientific and biomedical journals. MEDLINE is produced by the US National [Library of Medicine and covers over 4300 journals published throughout the world.

... All databases were searched in their entirety, and all foreignlanguage citations were retained; any studies that the committee deemed significant were translated into English. Because the focus of the committee's work was to review the literature regarding the human health effects of insecticide and solvent exposure, the primary searches used the comprehensive search strategy discussed above and then limited the retrieval to human studies.

... In addition to the formal online searches, the committee and staff examined the reference lists of major epidemiologic studies, review articles, and textbooks for relevant citations. The bibliographies of such reports as the International Agency for Research on Cancer's monograph series, ATSDR's Toxicological Profiles, the World Health Organization's Environmental Health Criteria documents, and the technical reports of the European Centre for Ecotoxicology and Toxicology of Chemicals provided many relevant citations.
