Carcinogenicity Assessment for Lifetime Exposure
  • Weight-of-Evidence Characterization
    • A (Human carcinogen)
  • Weight-of-Evidence Narrative:
    • The observation of an increased incidence of respiratory cancer in exposed workers and the observation of respiratory tumors in mice, rats, and hamsters exposed by inhalation forms the basis for this classification.
    • This may be a synopsis of the full weight-of-evidence narrative. See IRIS Summary.

Quantitative Estimate of Carcinogenic Risk from Oral Exposure

  • Information reviewed but value not estimated. See IRIS Summary.
