The paper addresses three questions that are crucial in the evaluation of rat tumor data and in the assessment of carcinogenic risk for humans. One question is whether to consider these lesions 'hyperplastic' or 'neoplastic' in nature, the latter classification being indicative of tumor formation. A second question is to interpret the finding that in some experimental systems, certain nonmalignant proliferative lesions may regress following removal of an inciting, carcinogenic stimulus, with only a small proportion of the lesions persisting. Finally, it is important to know whether any of these lesions may progress to carcinoma.
