Publisher Summary Studies on chemical carcinogenesis have three main purposes. First is to elucidate carcinogenic mechanisms, second is to prevent possible carcinogenic hazard due to chemicals in the environment, and third is to provide clinical model systems in experimental animals. Recent studies on chemical carcinogens and mutagens have shown that, with a few exceptions, carcinogens are mutagenic and mutagens are carcinogenic. 4NQO is an example of a compound that has long been known to be… CONTINUE READING
