para-AMINOAZOBENZENE

VOL.: 8 (1975) (p. 53)

5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal carcinogenicity data

para-Aminoazobenzene is carcinogenic in rats following its oral administration, producing liver tumours, and by application to the skin, producing epidermal tumours. Experiments involving its subcutaneous injection in mice and rats or its intraperitoneal injection in rats could not be evaluated because of the limited numbers of animals used or the inadequate duration of the studies.

5.2 Human carcinogenicity data

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

Subsequent evaluation: Suppl. 7 (1987)
