C.I. Pigment Red 3, a yellowish red solid, is widely used for coloring paints, inks, plastics, and rubber, and in textile printing. It is used in a wide range of consumer items such as wallpaper, typewriter ribbons, carbon paper, and art materials. Toxicology and carcinogenicity studies were conducted by feeding groups of F344/N rats and B6C3F1 mice of each sex diets containing C.I. Pigment Red 3 (97% pure) for 2 weeks, 13 weeks, and 2 years. Genetic toxicology studies were conducted in… Expand

Evidence of a Threshold-Effect for 2-Amino-3,8-dimethylimidazo-[4,5-f]quinoxaline Liver Carcinogenicity in F344/DuCrj Rats
Results imply that 1 ppm may be a no-effect level for MeIQx carcinogenesis, and significant decreases of survival rate and body weight gain were observed in rats treated with 100 ppm Me IQx. Expand
Indicators for lack of systemic availability of organic pigments.
Experimental data of all 143 organic pigments registered with the European Chemicals Agency, of which 88 were listed in a nanomaterial inventory, was retrieved from the registered substance fact sheets and shows absence of metabolism or significant uptake and is in support of this. Expand
Chemically induced pheochromocytomas in rats: mechanisms and relevance for human risk assessment
The evaluation revealed that pheochromocytomas occur with relatively higher frequency in male rats, especially when the following conditions are involved: hypoxia, uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation, disturbance in calcium homeostasis, and disturbance of the hypothalamic endocrine axis. Expand
Dietary restrictions and cancer.
Understanding how DR works may significantly contribute to the efforts to explain how diet impacts on development of cancer in the United States, and may suggest methods to reduce the adverse impacts of other environmental agents on the disease. Expand
