Resumen Taking into account available data concerning the alkylating nature of ethylene oxide, the reproducible positive carcinogenic findings in experimental animals, the overwhelmingly positive in vivo mutagenicity and genotoxicity tests, and the epidemiological findings suggesting an increase in the incidence of human cancer, ethylene oxide should be considered as probable human carcinogen, and its levels in the environment should be kept as low as feasible.
