5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal data

No evaluation concerning the carcinogenicity of acriflavinium chloride can be made from the only limited study in rats given the compound by subcutaneous injection. Further testing of this compound would appear to be desirable, also in view of the results obtained in mutagenicity studies.

5.2 Human data

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

Subsequent evaluation: Suppl. 7 (1987) (p. 56: Group 3)
