A literature review was undertaken to assess feasibility of using bacteria as screening agents to detect environmental carcinogens. Mutagenicity data were included in the study because growing experimental evidence indicates that most chemical carcinogens are mutagens, and many mutagens may be carcinogens. This investigation found that bacterial mutagenesis can be used to initiate a series of studies designed to screen for potential mutagens and carcinogens in mixed chemical wastes. This report was submitted in fulfillment of Grant No. R-804586 by the University of Houston under partial sponsorship of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This report covers the period 15 June 1976 to 14 April 1977. Work was completed as of 1 May 1977.
