5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal carcinogenicity data

Scarlet red induced local sarcomas in rats following its subcutaneous injection; however, no data are reported for controls given the solvent alone. Another experiment in which mice were treated orally gave a negative result, but the adequacy of the dose could not be assessed. Other experiments were considered inadequate for evaluation.

5.2 Human carcinogenicity data

No case reports or epidemiological studies were available to the Working Group.

Subsequent evaluation: Suppl. 7 (1987) (p. 71: Group 3)

For definition of Groups, see Preamble Evaluation.
