A database containing qualitative and quantitative results of experimental studies in the fields of genotoxicity and carcinogenicity has been developed. By analyzing results of the studies performed by the U.S. National Toxicology Program, or by a similar program developed in Japan, or reported in the scientific literature, as well performed by private(More)
The potential genotoxic activity of carminic acid (CAS no. 1260-17-9; EINECS no. 215-023-3; C.I. no. 75410), a component of natural red colouring products (cochineal: CAS no. 1343-78-8; EINECS no. 215-680-6; C.I. no. 75470), used in food, cosmetics and drugs, has been evaluated by means of a series of short-term tests in vitro and in vivo, namely Salmonella(More)
