5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal carcinogenicity data

In oral experiments in mice, insufficient details were available to allow an evaluation to be made.

Two feeding studies in rats were reported. One was negative, although the time when the tumours occurred in both treated and control groups was not given; the other provided no details of pathological studies and therefore cannot be evaluated.

5.2 Human carcinogenicity data

The epidemiological study carried out on occupationally exposed workers does not allow any conclusions to be made concerning the existence of an excess risk of developing cancer.

Subsequent evaluation: Suppl. 7 (1987) (p. 63: Group 3)

For definition of Groups, see Preamble Evaluation.
