||To assess potential risks of chemicals to humans, extrapolation of the findings in laboratory animals to possible health effects in humans is inevitable. Several important biological issues must be considered in such a process; these include extrapolation between doses, species (including strain and sex), routes of administration and exposure regimens (e.g., intermittent vs constant rate). While there is no perfect surrogate for humans in the evaluation of carcinogenic potential and other toxicities of chemicals and other agents, rodents still represent the best models. Any imperfection in such a process (i.e., hazard identification and risk assessment of any given chemical or other agent) must be taken into consideration during extrapolation.
