Title Carcinogenicity bioassays of vinyl chloride - I. Research plan and early results.
Bibliographic information 1974, Vol.7, No.3, p.387-405. Illus. 25 ref.
Abstract An investigation into the carcinogenic potentialities of vinyl chloride in experimental animals. The effects of this compound are being studied in relation to various experimental factors (route of administration, dose level, length of treatment, species, strain, age of the animals, etc.). Preliminary results are presented. A direct relationship has been found between dose and length of treatment, and neoplastic response.
