EVALUATION OF THE POTENTIAL CARCINOGENICITY OF N-NITROSODIETHYLAMINE
EVALUATION OF THE POTENTIAL CARCINOGENICITY OF N-NITROSODIETHYLAMINE. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/8-91/160.
N-Nitrosodiethylamine is a probable human carcinogen, classified as weight-of-evidence Group B2 under the EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment (U.S. EPA, 1986a). vidence on potential carcinogenicity from animal studies is "Sufficient," and the evidence from human studies is "No Data." he potency factor (F) for N-nitrosodiethylamine is estimated to be 969 (mg/kg/day)-1, placing it in potency group 1 according to the CAG's methodology for evaluating potential carcinogens (U.S. EPA, 1986b). Combining the weight-of-evidence group and the potency group, N-nitrosodiethylamine is assigned a "HIGH" hazard ranking for the purposes of RQ adjustment.
