Abstract

The reviews set out to provide the most relevant scientific findings from studies in animals, from the results of short term tests for mutagens and carcinogens and from epidemiological studies that altogether are utilised in the risk assessment of a chemical. The label "carcinogen" covers a broad spectrum of carcinogenic potency and in many practical situations, on the factory floor among others, it is desirable for those with responsibility for chemical safety to have some background information to help them to appreciate where on the scale of potency, admittedly as yet crude, a particular chemical might be placed.
