Computer-generated listings of data from short-term tests for genetic and related effects (activity profile listings) were prepared for 195 compounds that included for each compound: the test system (identified by a three-letter code word); qualitative results; and the lowest effective dose (LED) or highest ineffective dose (HID) tested. A corresponding bar or line graph (activity profile) also was generated, in which test systems are displayed along the x-axis and the LED or HID values along the y-axis. The listings were reviewed and the data summarized by an IARC Working Group. The methodology used to generate these listings and plots is described, and results are given for one compound, benzene. The entire data base contains approximately 7,000 entries from 4,000 references. (Copyright (c) Elsevier Science Publishers B.V. 1988.)
