In a second round of tests, the animals were forced to breathe in the fumes of a Ford F-250 used for the purposes of comparison, because the vehicle was an older model with apparently less sophisticated filter technology.
According to the reports, the ethics committee at Aachen University Hospital permitted the tests under occupational doctor Prof Thomas Kraus. Human subjects were exposed to nitrogen dioxide, a major byproduct of burning fuel.
The human experiments appear to have been conducted between 2012 and 2015 and there were no reports of subsequent injuries related to them.

"Everything must be done now to establish under whose orders and when these tests were carried out", said Mr Weill, who is on the supervisory board.
