5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal data

Copper 8-hydroxyquinoline has been tested in two strains of mice by oral and by single subcutaneous administration. Although a significantly increased incidence of reticulum-cell sarcomas was observed only in males of one strain following single subcutaneous injection, no evaluation of the carcinogenicity of this compound can be made on the basis of the available data.

5.2 Human data

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

Subsequent evaluation: Suppl. 7 (1987) (p. 61: Group 3)
