5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal data

Eosin has been tested only in rats by oral and subcutaneous administration, and eosin disodium salt has been administered to rats by subcutaneous injection; the data are insufficient for an evaluation of carcinogenicity of these compounds to be made.

5.2 Human data

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

Subsequent evaluation: Suppl. 7 (1987) (p. 63: Group 3)
