||Environmental Health Centre, Health Canada, Room 104, Tunney's Pasture, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0L2, Canada, 1993. v, 27p. 97 ref.
||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.
