ortho- AND para-DICHLOROBENZENE

VOL.: 7 (1974) (p. 231)

5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal carcinogenicity data

No adequate studies on which to base an evaluation of carcinogenicity were available to the Working Group.

5.2 Human carcinogenicity data

One report has suggested an association between leukaemia and exposure to dichlorobenzenes, but this is insufficient evidence from which to assess the carcinogenic risk of this compound.

Subsequent evaluations: Vol. 29 (1982); Suppl. 7 (1987); Vol73 (1999)
