Resumen Exposure of man to propylene oxide mainly occurs through inhalation at the workplace. Taking into account the body of available data - the alkylating nature of propylene oxide, the formation of DNA adducts, the positive response in in vitro mutagenesis assays, the carcinogenic effects in animals at the sites of entry into the body, and the absence of adequate data on cancer in human beings - propylene oxide should be regarded as if it presented a carcinogenic risk for man, and levels in the environment should be kept as low as feasible.
