A carcinogenesis bioassay of 1,2-dibromoethane, a widely used nematocide and leaded gasoline additive, was conducted by exposing groups of 50 F344 rats and B6C3F1 mice of each sex by inhalation to concentrations of 10 or 40 ppm of the 1,2-dibromoethane for 78-103 weeks. Untreated controls consisted of 50 rats and 50 mice of each sex exposed in chambers to ambient air. Throughout the study, mean body weights of high-dose rats and high-dose mice of either sex were lower than those of the… CONTINUE READING
