A methodology has been developed to display and evaluate multiple test quantitative information on genetic toxicants for purposes of hazard/risk assessment. Genetic activity profiles were prepared which illustrate a quantitative data base on the genetic and related effects of nearly 200 chemicals for which some data are available on carcinogenicity in humans. This information may be used for purposes of comparative chemical hazard assessment. Together with information derived from animal cancer tests and human epidemiological studies, assessments may be made regarding potential human health risks associated with exposure to chemical substances.
