||Benz(a)anthracene 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 'No Data'. The potency factor (F) for benz(a)anthracene is estimated to be 21.1/(mg/kg/day), placing it in potency group 2 according to the CAG's methodology for evaluating potential carcinogens. Combining the weight-of-evidence group and the potency group, benz(a)anthracene is assigned a 'MEDIUM' hazard ranking for the purposes of RQ adjustment.
