EVALUATION OF THE POTENTIAL CARCINOGENICITY OF N-NITROSODIMETHYLAMINE
EVALUATION OF THE POTENTIAL CARCINOGENICITY OF N-NITROSODIMETHYLAMINE. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/8-91/161 (NTIS PB93196459), 1988.
N-Nitrosodimethylamine 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-nitrosodimethylamine is estimated to be 61.2 (mg/kg/day) 1, placing it in potency group 2 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-nitrosodimethylamine is assigned a "MEDIUM" hazard ranking for the purposes of RQ adjustment.
