Mutagenicity studies with nitrofurans. III. Mutagenicity testing of nitrofurylacrylic acid in human blood and urine.


Human blood and urine mutagenicity of 3-(5-nitro-2-furyl)acrylic acid (5-NFA) was analysed by using Salmonella typhimurium indicator strains TA100 AND TA98 and the cytogenetic analysis of human peripheral lymphocytes. 8 human volunteers were given doses of 1 g 5-NFA per os. The mutagenic effect in blood was analysed after 0, 0.5, 1, 2 and 4 h, in urine… (More)
