Abstract Conclusions of this criteria document: most available data on the toxicological properties of 1,1,1,2-tetrafluroroethane have been derived from studies conducted with laboratory animals. 1,1,1,2-tetrafluroroethane exhibits relatively low toxicity. There are indications of developmental toxicity following maternal exposure in rats and rabbits. The evidence for carcinogenicity is limited to an increased incidence of Leydig cell adenomas following exposure to 50,000ppm. The substance has not been found to be genotoxic in studies conducted to date.
