In response to the 2005 revised U.S Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Cancer Guidelines, a strategy is being developed to include all mutagenicity and other genotoxicity data with additional information to determine whether the initiating step in carcinogenesis is through a mutagenic mode of action (MOA). This information is necessary to decide if(More)
Rhesus monkeys were fed azo dyes derived from benzidine (a known human bladder carcinogen). The urinary excretion of free benzidine was assayed and compared to the amount excreted when benzidine itself was fed. A substantial amount of the dye fed was converted to free benzidine. Results indicate that the simple precaution in the use of only azo dyes(More)
We discuss the organization of a remote frozen section service in northern Norway. The service is operated by remote control of a motorized video-microscope located at Kirkenes Hospital, at a distance of more than 400 km from the workstation at the University Hospital in Tromsø. The video images of the frozen section are transmitted via a two-way telephone(More)
Pesticide chemicals (more than 40) with limited evidence for carcinogenicity in animal experiments, and assigned to Group C according to the EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment, were further analyzed and ranked by refining the weight of the evidence evaluation. For some of these chemicals there were considerable concern with respect to their(More)
The carcinogen potential of methidathion, a dimethoxyorganic phosphorus pesticide and cholinesterase inhibitor, was evaluated by the Health Effects Division of the Office of Pesticide Programs using a consensus peer review process and the EPA's guidelines for risk assessment. Methidathion was categorized as a Group C (possible human) carcinogen based upon(More)
Telepathology comprises the transmission of microscopic images via the telecommunications network. This paper describes the first experiences from this new technology in Norway. These include teleconferences based on showing histologic slides from the Department of Pathology at the University Hospital in Tromsø to clinicians at local hospitals. A frozen(More)
