5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal carcinogenicity data

Orange G was only tested in mice and rats by the oral route. The available studies in mice do not allow an evaluation, since in one study the adequacy of the dose could not be assessed and in the other information on pathology and survival rates was insufficient. The study in rats cannot be evaluated due to limited reporting.

5.2 Human carcinogenicity data

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

Subsequent evaluation: Suppl. 7 (1987) (p. 69: Group 3)

For definition of Groups, see Preamble Evaluation.
