We used established unit risk estimates for carcinogens and/or chronic reference values for noncarcinogens to set thresholds for each category.
For example, the success of liver weight changes, labeling index, and liver hypertrophy in the "prediction" of the rat liver carcinogenicity of DEHP has to be qualified once similar responses are seen for the rat liver noncarcinogen CINN (Figure 1).
If the cost of false negatives is very high-- and it may be to a firm formulating a new consumer product--then the test that most reliably identifies true-negatives or noncarcinogens, would be most useful.
9% of the total exposure to the carcinogenic PAHs BaP, [SIGMA] 2PAH, [SIGMA] 4PAH, and [SIGMA] 8PAH, respectively, were attributed to inhalation during showering, which suggests that inhalation exposure primarily involves PAHs classified as noncarcinogens or as low potency carcinogens.
Several authors have specifically suggested that the BMDL may serve as a PoD for carcinogens and noncarcinogens alike, leading to an integrated approach to cancer and noncancer risk assessment (Gaylor et al.
For instance, 50% of noncarcinogens among pharmaceuticals have some findings in genotoxicity assays (Hoffmann and Hartung 2006; MacDonald 2004; Snyder 2009; Snyder and Green 2001).
Among a group of chemicals of mixed chemical class, a greater percentage of the compounds that are mutagenic in the Salmonella assay arc likely to be rodent carcinogens compared with the percentage of nonmutagens likely to be noncarcinogens (Kirkland et al.
If there is sufficient evidence that the MOA leading to cancer is nonlinear, then the assessment does not provide a quantitative estimate of risk but proceeds in a manner similar to that for noncarcinogens.
The Davis and Svendsgaard database consists of results for noncarcinogens, and the remaining 76--88% of dose responses would be threshold responses.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC 1993) has classified aflatoxin as a group 1 human carcinogen; ochratoxins and fumonosins as group 2B possible human carcinogens; and trichothecenes and zearalenone as noncarcinogens (group 3).
EPA's Region III Air Radiation and Toxics Division using the TRI databases and chronic oral toxicity factors and total mass for both carcinogens and noncarcinogens to estimate the relative hazards of TRI chemicals.
