Abstract
2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (2,3,7,8-TCDD) is a probable human carcinogen, classified as weight-of-evidence Group B2 under the EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment. Evidence on potential carcinogenicity from animal studies is 'Sufficient', and the evidence from human studies is 'Inadequate'. The potency factor (F) for 2,3,7,8-TCDD is estimated to be 659,000 (mg/kg/day)-1, placing it in potency group 1 according to the CAG's methodology for evaluating potential carcinogens. Combining the weight-of-evidence group and the potency group, 2,3,7,8-TCDD is assigned a 'HIGH' hazard ranking.
