1,3-Butadiene, a large-production volume chemical used mainly in the manufacture of synthetic rubber, was found to induce multiple-organ carcinogenicity in male and female B6C3F1 mice at exposure concentrations (625 and 1250 ppm) equivalent to and below the OSHA standard of 1000 ppm. Since this study was terminated after 60 weeks of exposure because of(More)
Isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene) was selected for toxicologic evaluations because of its structural similarity to 1,3-butadiene, a potent rodent carcinogen. Two-week inhalation toxicology studies of isoprene were conducted in F344 rats and B6C3F1 mice at exposure concentrations of 0, 438, 875, 1750, 3500, or 7000 ppm. For rats, there were no chemically(More)
Inhalation studies of molybdenum trioxide (MoO3) were conducted because of its wide use in industry, human exposure, and lack of data on carcinogenicity. Groups of 50 male and 50 female F344/N rats and B6C3F1 mice were exposed to MoO3 by inhalation at 0, 10, 30, or 100 mg/m3, 6 h/day, 5 days/week, for 2 years. In both rats and mice, survival and mean body(More)
