An extensive safety database has been developed for the chlorotriazine herbicide, atrazine. The results from five oncogenicity studies conducted in the Sprague-Dawley rat, two studies in the Fischer 344 rat, and two studies in the CD-1 mouse were reviewed. No increase in the incidence of tumors of any type was observed in male or female Fischer 344 rats, male or female CD-1 mice, or male Sprague-Dawley rats fed atrazine at a maximum tolerated level in their diet for 24 mo. Female Sprague-Dawley… CONTINUE READING
