Investigations were conducted to determine the reliability with which an expanded Salmonella mutagenesis test system can distinguish between those organic chemical substances that cause cancer in laboratory animals (presumptive carcinogens) and those that do not (noncarcinogens). The results of such tests of 100 organic compounds (50 presumptive carcinogens and 50 noncarcinogens) are described.
Study performed at the Center for the Biology of Natural Systems, Washington University, St. Louis, Mo. "Contract No. 68-01-2471." "Issued April 1976." Includes bibliographical references (pages 47-48).
