Carcinogenic potential cannot be determined Proposed Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment (U.S. EPA, 1996)
Basis:
  • There are no data in humans concerning development of cancer following exposure to tributyltin oxide (TBTO). Cancer bioassays following oral exposure have been conducted in rats and mice. Because of the questionable data from the bioassay in rats, EPA assigns TBTO to the "cannot be determined" category [U.S. EPA, 1996 (proposed)].
  • This may be a synopsis of the full weight-of-evidence narrative.
