Title Canadian Environmental Protection Act: Priority Substances List Assessment Report - 1,2-dichlorobenzene
Bibliographic information Environmental Health Centre, Health Canada, Room 104, Tunney's Pasture, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0L2, Canada, 1993. v, 27p. 97 ref.
Abstract This report reviews environmental and toxicological data on o-dichlorobenzene. Limited human data are available. Case reports of adverse effects associated with exposure to 1,2-dichlorobenzene or mixtures containing it are confined to haematological disorders, including anaemia and leukaemia. Available data are inadequate to assess the carcinogenicity of this substance in humans; on the basis of animal studies, it has been classified as probably not carcinogenic in man.
