The available data in rats have not provided evidence of carcinogenicity at levels of up to 50 ppm in the diet (corresponding to an intake of about 2.5 mg/kg bw/day).
The experiments in dogs and monkeys were too limited in duration and/or group sizes to allow any conclusions to be made.
Although fat concentrations of dieldrin residues were higher in terminal cancer patients than in control patients, this finding is inconclusive as to a causal relationship.
