Title Bioassay of 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid for carcinogenicity in mice.
Bibliographic information June 1976, Vol.33, No.6, p.626-633. 18 ref.
Abstract 2,4,5-T herbicide containing less than 0.05ppm dioxins was administered to mice. Tumours of the lung, liver and some rare forms of tumours were attributed to the 2,4,5-T and not to any impurities. Results in different mouse species indiate that mice may not be ideal models for 2,4,5-T carcinogenicity tests.
