5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation
5.1 Animal carcinogenicity data
No adequate studies on which to base an evaluation of carcinogenicity
were available to the Working Group.
5.2 Human carcinogenicity data
One report has suggested an association between leukaemia and exposure
to dichlorobenzenes, but this is insufficient evidence from which
to assess the carcinogenic risk of this compound.
Subsequent evaluations: Vol. 29 (1982);
Suppl. 7 (1987); Vol73 (1999)
