||This monograph presents the views and expert opinions of an IARC working group which met in Lyon, France, 7-14 June 1994, concerning the cancer risks of helminths (parasitic worms), schistosoma and Heliobacter pylori. Of the seven agents reviewed, three were rated 1 (carcinogenic to humans), one was rated 2A (probably carcinogenic to humans), one was rated 2B (possibly carcinogenic to humans) and two were classified 3 (not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans). For each agent, the following aspects are covered: exposure data; studies of cancer in humans; studies of cancer in experimental animals; other data relevant to an evaluation of carcinogenicity and its mechanisms; summary of reported data and evaluation.
