A simplified carcinogenic potency index, the T25, is proposed as a practical method for the inclusion of potency considerations in carcinogen classification systems. The T25 is the chronic daily dose in mg per kg bodyweight which will give 25% of the animals tumours at a specific tissue site, after correction for spontaneous incidence, within the standard(More)
In 1992 the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development decided to harmonize carcinogen classification systems. A proposal for a harmonized classification system is currently being considered by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). In many countries, classification of a chemical as carcinogenic triggers labeling(More)
In April 1994, the first version of the Uniform System for the Evaluation of Substances (USES 1.0) was launched to comply with an action point of the Netherlands National Environmental Policy Plan. USES is a tool for the rapid, quantitative assessment of the hazards and risks of chemical substances, including new substances, existing substances,(More)
Uptake of fucose, glucosamine, galactose, and mannose and the incorporation of these sugars into glycoconjugates have been quantified in a model epithelial tumor, the basosquamous cell carcinoma of the rat. Following isolation of glycoprotein and papain digestion, the fucosylated glycopeptides were fractionated according to molecular weight (Mr) and by(More)
The composition of isolated [3H]-fucose- and [3H]-glucosamine-labeled glycopeptides from psoriatic lesion, psoriatic uninvolved, regenerating-normal, and normal epidermis (subdivided into basal and differentiated cells) has been analyzed according to molecular weight and affinity to concanavalin A. Basal cells from normal skin have a higher sialic acid(More)
