Lymphohematopoietic Cancers Induced By Chemicals and Other Agents: Overview and Implications for Risk Assessment (Final Report)
This EPA report provides an overview of the types of mechanisms underlying the lymphohematopoietic cancers induced by chemical agents and radiation in humans, with a primary emphasis on leukemia and leukemia-inducing agents. It focuses on how mechanistic information on human leukemia-inducing agents can inform risk assessment.
