Final Report - FURAN-RA (Role of genetic and non-genetic mechanisms in furan risk)

Project ID: 44393
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

This is the final report of the FURAN-RA project. Furan is a potent hepatotoxicant and liver carcinogen in rodents. The project addressed modes of action for tumour induction in liver by the food contaminant furan, which is formed by processing of food resulting in widespread human exposure. The results provide data on the mode-of-action of furan induced liver carcinogenesis as a basis for a conclusive assessment of health risks in humans due to dietary exposure. The combination of these findings provide a risk / benefit analysis and a scientific basis to justify limits for human furan exposures.
