5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal carcinogenicity data

Terpene polychlorinates (StrobaneR) were tested in a preliminary study by the oral route in two strains of mice and produced an increased incidence of hepatomas in males of one strain. The suggestion that the product also increased the incidence of malignant lymphomas in this species awaits confirmation.

No adequate data were available for other species or other routes of administration.

5.2 Human carcinogenicity data

No epidemiological studies were available to the Working Group.

Subsequent evaluation: Suppl. 7 (1987) (p. 71: Group 3)

For definition of Groups, see Preamble Evaluation.
